Am I silly or bold  

To be out walking in the cold  

Am I silly or bold  

To not listen to what I am told  

Am I silly or bold  

To keep writing about Putin’s foolish goal  

Am I silly or bold  

To believe humanity will remove its blindfold

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. It’s okay to be both in life! ๐Ÿ˜‰
    You are BOLD and your words help others be bold, too. Good thing, for sure! AND you are hopeful! A really good thing, for sure! ๐Ÿ™‚
    Love the artwork and the song/vid you shared, too.
