Toothless Broom

I am singing the same old tune  

About life’s empty room 

I will fly you to the moon 

To recover your silver spoon  

I will swim to Xanadu 

To save you from gloom  

I will wear a new costume  

And throw away my toothless broom

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.
