I whisper softly

But my soul is softer

I’ve a heart that beats strongly

But my soul is stronger

I’ve a voice that sings deeply

But my soul is deeper

Whispers, my feathered quill

Softly writing, my soul’s free will

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. Thanks Mark, my cousin has quite a talent for painting, something he has taken up in his retirement years, he’s 79 now, and enjoys his newfound creative side…. He’s also written 2 novels… Wow πŸ˜‰πŸ˜Š

  1. Your soul is beautiful, Ivor! It shines through in everything you do!
    A person’s soul is what matters most. And then it lives on, beyond our bodies. πŸ™‚

    OH! Your cousin Brian’s painting is wonderful! It reminds me of some old buildings I’ve visited in The West! πŸ™‚

    That song always touches my heart and brings the tears. “You see all I need’s a whisper in a world that only shouts.”

    1. Thank you again Nanette, it’s very kind of you to be reading and commenting on these recent poems… Sometimes I amaze myself at how productive my soul can be, because my works are not superficial, but from deep within me.. πŸ’™πŸŒπŸ’™πŸ˜‘
