  1597.     

That Great Galaxy Of Fame

Poetic Style: Acrostic.

Did he study for his Doctorate
Or was the degree honrary?
College boy he could have been
The star of all philosophy...
Outstanding and superior
Riding high in the field of knowledge.
Antecedent to a Nobel Prize.
Tomorrow, he may very well be
Entering into the galaxy.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1598.     

That Lonesome Word

'Poverty'

As far as the eye can see
no other word in our vocabulary
begins with letters p-o-v.
The word stands all alone
calling for our sympathy,
humanity, love and charity.
Let us hope this lonely word
will soon be swept into history.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1599.     

That Special Way

One bright and sunny morning
in the activity of the day,
the mailman called
and the heavens roared
as she smiled in that special way.
She cheerfully opened an envelope
and there to her utter surprise
a cheque she found
for thousands of pounds...
a coveted poetry prize.

Thoughts of giving entered her mind;
thoughts of the dying and blind,
and cash she assigned
to the poor and deprived,
there was never a lassie so kind.
When her giving was done
the gift she had won
had flown like the blossom of May,
but her heart was so light,
she thanked God in the night
as she smiled in 'that special way'.
 
Joyce Hemsley
   
 

   
   
 

  1600.     

That's All I Ask

Music is the peace I've found
It calms the stress of pain;
Maybe our hearts will beat as one
If you sing to me once again.

Choose a song of purest love
The lyrics I'll cherish so;
Sing of butterflies and doves;
Answer my prayer oh Romeo.

Sing to me once again my love
~~ that's all I ask of you ~~
And I will be your Helen of Troy
Your Juliet, and your Sylvia too.
 
Joyce Hemsley
