Before The Bell Rings

Before The Bell Rings

I am changing my daily routine

Now summer is in full swing

Hot like a fiery lantern

Before the breakfast bell rings

I will leave early and go walking

With doggie in tow, happily prancing

We will bathe in golden sunrises

Under the cobalt blue skies

Adorned with white cirrus stripes

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.
