Throwback Friday, There’s More, by Ivor Steven

I am ageing and slowiing down, but I am still writing a poem everyday, and “There Is More”

Go Dog Go Café

Yesterday I posted a poem on my website called “Is There More”, and ironically here today I am presenting a poem called “There’s More”, which I wrote on November 2nd 2018

There’s More

It’s eleven seventeen

I’m not nineteen

Anymore

Old warriors are bold

I’ll not be told

Anymore

Enjoyed an evening out

I’m not losing face

Anymore

Tired eyes are closing

I’m not going fishing

Anymore

Hands of time have been

I’ll not be unseen

Anymore

My feet are willing to travel

I’m not covered in gravel

There’s more

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. Your world of poetry is not narrowing, it is opening up, with the progression of age and the advance of wisdom. Wisdom, hard-won, unchallenged, dwells in your eyes as you look upon your surroundings. Now is the time to pluck meaning out of dross, emeralds out of cubic zircona piles.
