Moonlight Words

Have I reached the summit? 

Of my Mt Kosciusko 

Is it time to retire? 

To the valley below Mt Beauty 

Or will I remain here? 

Within the shadows of our You Yangs 

My mind is tired 

And these old bones 

Are pointing down 

I wake up with a frown 

Like I am wearing King Charles’ heavy crown  

Ironically, the day after my finest hour 

I am writing these words 

For you to read 

For everyone to read 

My quill is yet to run dry 

Nor has my river of tears run dry 

And my dreams continue to fly 

Freely under the moonlight sky

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 clicked on Alicia and then began reading your poem, Ivor. I got a bit teary-eyed.
    Keep writing! Keep dreaming! Keep letting those tears flow! Keep flying! ❤️
    Coop and I will walk tonight to commune with the moonlit sky!
    (((HUGS))) 🙂 ❤️

    1. Thank you Carolyn, … I wrote the poem last Monday when I was in Ballarat resting and relaxing, after a couple of tough months for me … Alicia played the tune superbly … and yes I have already resumed writing again … we are stuck at home today, it’s cold, wet, and windy again … 🤗🐶🌏😍

  2. Sometimes, we’d been on that uphill climb, way too long, and we get, totally stuck, dead in the halfway places, as turning back would mean, that all those hard climbs we already weathered would be for naught, but there’s, that, never-ending road that winds, ahead, and we see, no end, in, sight.
