Pakington Street

These sore ageing feet

Have been pounding the beat

Up and down, picturesque Pakington Street

Worn out soles are feeling the heat

This old soul has stopped for a sandwich to eat

Up beyond West Park, they’ll be a comfy seat

And a refreshing drink of chai latte and sweets

At the Depot Cafe, quaint and neat

A satisfying lunch, now I’m replete

Relaxed, and exercise complete


A few more pictures from my walk up and down, Pakington Street.

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. I won’t know until next MRI on the 31st Jan, hopefully with a wave of the wand everything will be alright. It was a long walk for me today, I was happy the result, and still did my 2 x 10min Yorkie pedals, plus 2 lots of exercises….. but my bedtimes are early, so blogging is missing out xx

      1. It’s always got some of my poem booklets in it, and along with a few groceries the backpack always ends up a bit heavier than it should. πŸ™„πŸŽπŸŒπŸ§€πŸ¦
