And here is my poem, “The Faerie Shelter”

The Faerie Shelter, by Ivor Steven

Beyond the hands of time

In a garden of parsley, sage, and thyme

Live faeries of magic and rhyme

Dancing in the midnight faerie pantomime

Under the moonlit sky they frolic and roam

Among reeds of the field-mouse’s hidden home

Where the wise owl broods atop his mushroom

And dragonflies hover above mystical gnomes

Here guardian sprites defend the crimson forest

That stoically shelter Saraswati the Hindu goddess

As she dutifully protects the faeries secret hamlets

From horrid humans and their gargantuan spirits

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. Frankie is really adjusting quickly … we are getting on like long lost buddies …
        “The Stolen Child” is a poem by William Butler Yeats, published in 1889, which was one of many poems by Yeats that Waterboys wrote music to … In fact they have an Album dedicated to him … “An Appointment With Mr Yeats”, 2011, which I thoroughly reccommend … πŸ’šπŸ’›πŸŽ΅πŸ˜πŸΆ
