Now Or Never

Poem By Joyce Hemsley

Forty Words:

A poor country girl am I
'sixteen' ~ at Virginia High
Let's meet after school
swimming at the local pool.

A rich college boy am I
'nineteen' ~ and for you I pine
Let's break every rule
falling in love after school.

A Place Called Jackson

With tearful eyes I said my goodbyes
To Aunt and Uncle, many years ago.
Their home was Jackson Tennessee
Where Pearl River waters floweth free.

A Flood Of Memories

Romantic nights of song and dance
Still live within my heart
And when I recall our ecstasy
Beautiful memories start.

Magic Link

Oh where, oh where has our love gone?
a love we shared, a love that shone
and made us happy through each day
just like a bird, it has flown away.

Humour In Mind

Today is dark and stormy,
strong winds are hurtling by,
my bank account is dwindling
but What care I?

A Sad Sad Story

The river flowed through meadows green
I saw the wild rose, pink and serene.
There came a voice from beyond the blue,
An angel from heaven said - it was you.

A Friend Forever

We both decided to dress in style
when visiting our 'long ago' friend
knowing for sure, he'd wear a smile
if we were clad in up-to-date trend.
