Cheeky Magpie

A glorious sunny Sunday.

Plenty of time for a walk today.

Lily prances and plays.

“Let’s go now” she says.

And of course she talks !!

That’s what we do on our walks.

Off to the local countryside cafe`.

For me, a Brandy & Almond cake and coffee.

And you Lily, can quietly sniff around.

Wander the shopowner’s grounds.

So serene here, sitting on the bower patio.

Trees, flowers and birds on show.

Then a cheeky Magpie stops by.

Lily barks, but cleverly he stays high.

Atop the coffee-table, crumbs to try.

A delicious feast, and off he fly’s.

Lily gives him a parting yelp, and we leave.

Our pleasant afternoon’s reprieve.

G'day, and welcome to my blog site. My name is Ivor Steven, I live in Geelong, Australia. I'm an ex-industrial chemist, and a retired plumber, and a former Carer of my wife(Carole), for 30 years, who suffered from severe MS. I Write poetry about those personal thoughts, throughout and beyond my life as a Carer. I've been blogging for over 2 years, and writing poems for 19 years. Of course a lot of my poems are about my favourite subject Carole, but since I've been blogging my writings have become quite varied, humourous, mystical, observational, and even a few monster/horror poems.

  1. Beautiful pictures Ivor. I love the name Chocolate Cafe, it beckons you in. On a cool day I’d enjoy a cup of hot chocolate and a toasted tea cake, and like you I’d be chatting away to your gorgeous Lily
