A Sunday Dream

did you hear the stars sing last night?


neither did I

did you see the sun cry at dawn?


neither did I

did you hear the bells ring this morning?


neither did I

did you feel the earth sigh today?


neither did I

there is you, I, and why

why cannot they see the sky?

why do they always lie?

why do they not cry?

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. Another beautiful, amazing Derrick and Ivor duet that brings the emotion!
    This is one of your bestest ever poems, Ivor! Wow! Such amazing word-pics, emotions, questions, and message! It makes us ponder important things!
    It’s sad that we Human-Beans can be so self-focused we forget to care about our universe. We need to find a balance, so as a species we can make a positive difference for future generations. We have the ability to understand, and do, far more than we allow ourselves to.
    LOVE that song! πŸ™‚
    PATS and RUBS to Sir Frankie! Or PANTS and RIBS, if he prefers! πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜›

    1. Yes .. I feel so privileged to be using Derrick’s wonderful photos on my poetry site … my dream was so vivid, and my words were the result … and the lyric’s to ‘Sleeping At Last’s’ song are amazing, .. and the main message behind my poems is to have people think about the universe we live in … and feel the nature of our surroundings .. πŸ’›πŸŒπŸ’™πŸΆ
