Will the Doves Ever Be Free?

A big thank you to Dale, for who I wrote a 16 word poem/comment on her site

which later on, inspired to me to create this poem and music/video combination.

Will the Doves Ever Be Free?

Sunday morning

The bells are petitioning

For more than a King’s Ransom

Sunday’s doves are loudly singing

Their unceasing

And unfinished Anthem

Beyond Sunday’s unanswered sessions

The bells will not stop resounding

The Chimes of Freedom

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.
