Words Of Mine

Hello dear readers, I’ve been listening to Neil Young this morning(Again), and one of his songs, is a favourite of mine, “Words”, which has reminded me of an old poem I wrote a few years ago, and the wording of the poem seems to be very appropriate for my stay here in Philadelphia.Β  “Words Of Mine”, I hope you enjoy my ‘words’.

Words Of Mine


I’ve given you all, my humble words

I’ve given you, my hidden soul

Words trickling, through cool mountain streams

Words dripping off the frozen ashen trees

Words gliding across the icy lakes

Words flowing through happiness, and sorrow


I’ve given you all, my inner self

I’ve given you, my outer grief

Words Tumbling over the embedded rocks

Words twisting along the winding rivers

Words cascading down the forest waterways

Words sifting through my barren hands


I’ve given you all, my lonely heart

I’ve given you, my secret loves

Words of life, living under the vast oceans

Words of time, travelling to the stars beyond

Words of love, drowning in the memory rains

Words of mine, falling upon dreams of tomorrow



Ivor Steven.

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.
