Joyce Hemsley

(22.9.28 / Portsmouth England)

Day of Prayer


Sunday for Christians;
seventh day of the week,
peace for the weary heart
prayers for the meek.
How great 'The Holy City'
when sung with voices sweet
and in our minds
a Cross appears
to make the day complete...
praying with joyful hearts
the love of God we seek.

    I love your poetry Joyce. I've been reading for a while now. Your style is very soothing and this poem is just as great. I love going to church and this poem paints the picture of just how great the simple pleasure of going to church can be extremly soothing. Thank you.

    You will be one of few poets I read on this website from now on. (Report) Reply

poet Sir Walter Raleigh

EVEN such is Time, that takes in trust

And pays us but with earth and dust;
