More good news today. My book is available as a Hardcover copy at Barnes & Noble… Click on link here >>

Tullawalla by Ivor Steven, Kerri Costello, Hardcover | Barnes & Noble® (barnesandnoble.com)

Hopefully the Paperback version will be out soon too, and I’ll let you all know when I hear more from my publisher’s…

Today I’m reposting a poem from Saturday 22nd of December 2018, after basically a six week stay in hospital, recovering from my second stroke .. I was still not over all my problems, I was very tired, both physically and mentally, and I was due to start my many months of rehabilitation … It was a few days before Christmas, and I was looking forward to reviving my life again !! … Anyhow, It was lovely to be home, and I thought I’d repost this old poem of mine, to celebrate the rebirth of my book “Tullawalla” today, … please enjoy.

Hold Me

Take me to my home

Home is where my heart is

Home is on that windy hill

Above a secret valley

Laying under a heavenly cloud

Take me to my home

I am waiting here alone

All packed ready to go

Vacating this old place

Leaving this world behind

Take me to my home

The beyond will be greener

I know you will be there

You have been waiting for so long

I know you will hold me again

Hold me in our home

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. Yeah … things are on the move … and I’ve ordered myself a Hardcover copy… a bit expensive with shipping and tax… but to have my very own hardcover book is something special… 😀😍📘

    1. Yep … Phillip the penguin is leaping clapping .. and Oscar the wise old owl is hooting and wryly smiling … and my courtyard party is in full cry .. even Daniel the Dragonfly buzzed around flapping her rusty wings 😄🐧🦉🪰
