Lets Hear It For Joyce Hemsley


Six thousand plus poems in The Web Poetry Corner that's an amazing feat
The record of Joyce Hemsley's it never may be beat
The Guinness book of records must honour her one day
Lets hear it for Joyce Hemsley a rousing hip hooray.

Lets hear it for Joyce Hemsley a true poetic great
A poet for all ages and one to celebrate
As a master of many poetic forms she is known Worldwide
And credit of the good lady it cannot be denied.

It cannot be said of Joyce Hemsley that her better days are gone
Lets hear it for the great one she keeps on keeping on
'Tis true that poets are born and they cannot be made
She is a marvellous wordsmith and a laureate of her trade.

Her poems are so distinctive as they do have their own voice
The genius of many poetic forms the one and only Joyce
A very talented person and her type are so rare
One of the best of Britain few with her can compare.

Lets hear it for Joyce Hemsley to her the toasting glass we'll raise
The marvellous poet of Sunderland is worthy of our praise
Six thousand plus poems in her name and she writes more every day
And her verses say more about her than words can ever say.
