Ex-Soldier's Wonderful Day Poem by Joyce Hemsley


The good fight is won
I toiled in the sun
But today is a wonderful day.
Those in distress?
Not one I guess,
Gunfire is far faraway
Silent over the Bay.
And immortal romance
is here to stay.

How gentle is love
With my golden one,
Promise of a wedding in May.
Home is a pleasure
A life of leisure;
No hazy smoke-screen of grey
Just clean air in fields of hay
And immortal romance
Is here to stay.
