Tell Me How!

Forty words:

How can a vagrant be jealous?

The word doesn't fit at all.

Dispirited - inhibited - rejected,

Or 'Vagabond' answers the call.

No vehicle, wife or musical sound

How can a tramp be jealous when

He can never get off the ground.
 
Joyce Hemsley

Terrorist Tragedy

We can talk of wars between nations
and talk about the Thirty Years' War,
We can talk of cruise missiles and Trident
And the bombing over England's green shore...
We can talk on survival of the fittest,
And say 'warfare will always be' - but the
Most talked about horror of our time is:
Eleventh September, New York Twin Towers,
A terrorist tragedy!
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1587.     

Thank The Stars

Here he comes, my handsome one,
with eagerness to meet me.
Here I stand with outstretched hand
to accept the rose he brings me.

All doubts and fears disappear
now he is here to love me.
I know his kisses are sincere,
and I thank the stars above me.

There is no-one but he
How could there be?
For I'm his Red Rose of Tralee

July 2008

  1588.     

'Thank You' I said

I wrote a short poem
on inclement weather,
thinking I was being clever,
but one reader said:

'Yes, often there's snow
when the temperature's low,
but tell us something we don't know;
not in an essay or composition
but rhythm and rhyme
in recognition of the modern
technology exhibition'.

Thank you I said
for your helpful comment,
my pen is at hand
and I'll write a sonnet.
 
Joyce Hemsley
