Where to Flee for My Jubilee

Where to Flee for My Jubilee

This Jubilee year has flown

My seventieth has been rolled and mown

Party days have been squashed

I’ll be dinning on sausages and mash

No birthday cake, and no candles

Only breadcrumbs for the snails, life is a shambles

No presents or cards on the mantle

It’s time to unhitch Itmims, and throw on my sandals

Itmims; “Ivor’s Time Machime In Micro Space

Ivor Steven (c) July 2021

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.

      Hi Carolyn .. the big SEVEN ZERO is a good achievement for me , .. Twenty One years ago I thought my life was finishing…
      but here I am .. a 20 year old ‘poet’ … and that was the furthest thing from my mind, all I wanted to do was to be able to go home and look after my beloved Carole. .. 😊🥲 … and I did, .. for her next Twelve beautiful years 💝💕❤️ .. I have a bottle of Champagne in fridge for the “Our” birthday party 🎶😊😎🥂
