Tullawalla Is Here!!

My old school-case from sixty-years ago, full of “Tullawalla Books”

My house has been invaded by “Tullawalla Books” … come over and join the party, and lets celebrate … my long awaited SELF-PUBLISHED new edition is NOW available
… contact me via my web-email >> ivorrs20@gmail.com The book is only $20.00 AU plus postage & handling. If you are interested in purchasing a book, send me an email, I’ll send a PayPal Invoice out to you.

This Fence (Tullawalla, page 33)

I am quickly nearing this fence.

An obstacle of a lifetime I see.

And from my side of this fence,

The hurdle is too high for me.

And on the other side of this fence,

There seems nowhere to land or flee.

I have arrived at this fence,

Above the pickets, just grey sky.

And on my side of this fence,

The grass is brown and dry.

On the other side of this fence,

The grass is green, but still I cry.

How am I to clear this fence,

There seems nowhere to go or get by.

This fence, all built of stones,

Breaks my spirit, and all my bones.

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. I’m not sure yet I’ll ask my publisher .. if you like you can purchase one directly from me .. for about $50 AU including postage and handling.. just let me know via the email on my post πŸ“˜πŸ€—


    1. Thank you Sue … yes … and I am very pleased I took on the self publishing process .. lots of teething problems early on, but once I teamed up with Judy from Jaymah Press, my Tullawalla project became an enjoyable experience for me … the book looks fabulous Sue … πŸ“˜πŸ€—πŸ’•πŸŒ
