Lily and a Lizard of Wizardry

My Girl

Ivor Steven (c) November 2021

Published by


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. She was quite amazing .. and so lovingly adaptable to all the dramatic and trauma that was occurring around her .. she was with Carole and I for 8 years, and then another 5 years with me ๐Ÿถ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿถ

  2. Both of them are just wonderful pieces! My girl is so so cute- hind leg dances, enjoys all day pats aww. How lovely. Charming poem! The bonding between man and the canine is evolutionarily strengthened.
    Iโ€™m so so sorry about Lily.
