Short Poetry

Poem By Joyce Hemsley

Forty words:

Poems from childhood hearts
is where the hobby starts.
Students delighted in rhymes
back in 'Georgie Porgie' times.
Verses on Robin and his steed
satisfied a schoolboy's need.

Forty word poems
give advice:
ignore 'two' words if
'one' will suffice.

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.

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

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.

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

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.
