A New Pastime - Poem by Joyce Hemsley

Acrostic

Jaded and bored all the day through
Idle moments were making him blue.
Given the inclination and a forthright decision
Some suitable hobby may solve his ambition
A jigsaw puzzle could bring much joy
Wonderful for an art-loving boy.

Positive thinking and he was away.
Upholstery could wait till another day.
Zest and interest, no-one could deny
Zeal and enthusiasm hit the sky...
Lo and behold ~ the puzzle's complete
Exemplary picture of an old English Street.
