The Great Cole Porter

The great American Composer
Cole Porter, born in Indiana 1891.
Well loved and remembered for his
exquisite musical score.
'Kiss Me Kate' written in nineteen forty eight
and many many more. His lyrics were clever
to be forgotten never...and from memory
I quote well known words from an evergreen.

'Night and day, you are the one
only you beneath the moon
and under the sun,
whether near to you or far
no matter darling where you are
I think of you'.......

Ah the beauty of the song;
elegant and appealing,
enjoyed by High Society ~
the title of his famous film.
Married to the lovely Linda Lee,
his lifetime recorded in history.
He is under our skins and deep
within our hearts he will ever be.

Cole Porter's body is interred
in Indiana Mount Hope Cemetery.

The Great Speech

His speech was typed out
In double space...
Not that he'd ever need it!
But all anxiety drifted away
And the result was simply
'Exquisite'.
Nationalization, modern sensation
Privatization, some hesitation.
But the words were clear
To everyone's ear.
He received a standing ovation.
 
Joyce Hemsley

The Great Workers

North to South:
Men toiled all day to earn their pay
however cold the weather.
In heat or snow of long ago
they 'failed the system' never...
giving their families food and warmth
and shoes or boots of leather;
how true, how bold were men of old
all were birds of a feather.

East to West:
On building sites they worked for pay
until at the 'end of their tether'
ignoring the tempest, strength would grow
to change their status to 'creditor'...
this was the quest with each new dawn
never-ever the great pretenders
gathering silver, gathering gold;
all were men with firm feathers.

May God shine
His Holy ray on
fathers of yesterday.
 
Joyce Hemsley

The Halcyon Birds

Acres of beautiful meadows and trees
Country I love with its valleys and leas,
the sweet birds of England forever on show
in the place of my birth, where memories flow.

In 'halcyon' days when you walked with me
happily telling of our life yet to be,
Kingfisher Land was exquisitely grand
bird eggs from the nest floating over the sand.

Acres of beautiful meadows and trees
blue sky above overlooking the seas
sweet birds of England forever on show
their melody lingering, mild soft and low.
 
Joyce Hemsley
