I’ve posted this older poem, called “It’s Time” up at ‘Go Dog Go Cafe’s’ Throwback Friday segment..

I wrote the original of this poem a long time ago, but I presented the piece on my blog site on July 2017…. I’ve submitted the poem a couple of times for publication, but alas the piece has yet to be published… maybe ‘it’s time’ to give this poem another try…

It’s Time


We’ll miss you

Mother Earth

Your splendour

And imposing style

From forest canopy’s

To the desert Nile

New creations

Beauty, gone

We’ll lose you

Father Time

Your rhythm

And stoic guile

From ancient history

To the future files

New millennia

Awaiting, gone

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. Powerful poem by Ivor!
    Powerful song by Mr. Cohen!
    So many people talking, sharing, and warning for so long, so many decades…I hope the peoples of the earth will finally start paying attention and finding ways to stop the downhill slide.
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

    1. Actually … with a bit of encouragement from Eugenia, I’ve submitted this one to “Spillwords” magazine this afternoon… Yeah !!
      Leonard Cohen’s words are definitely deep and powerful, and they seemed to suit my poem… He really was a lyrical “wizard”…. 💙🌏
