Joyce Hemsley Poems
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.
Elvis~ a friendly potentate
Was their 'Rock-a-Billy' man so great,
Now, in mid August of each year
The constellation of Jackson churches
Pay homage to that name so dear.
Saved By The Moon
Forty Word Poem
Ten unkind words of yesterday
pierced her soul
turning the world to grey.
Their secret bond was broken.
Love's final word was spoken.
But old devil moon
soon came out to play
and unkind words of yesterday
just melted away.
