Throwback Friday, The Faeries of Fry’s Lane, by Ivor Steven

Here is a copy of my article I posted on “Go Dog Go Cafe” this morning,

A poem I wrote in May 2020 and now is published in my book “Perceptions”, page 3, prompted by Derrick Knight’s Featured Photo Above: ‘Hedgerow faeries along Fry’s Lane’ >>

The Faeries of Fry’s Lane

Walking down Fry’s Lane

Sheltering from the misty rain

I did spy among the hedgerow berries

A Frolic of mystical faeries

Like iridescent glowing canaries

A fluttering of night-time luminaries

Trying not to disturb their magical home

I quietly asked them, “Areyouallalone”

The faeries laughed and danced

They replied, “Your visionisby perchance

and your dreams may turn to stone

if you wish for a golden throne”

Suddenly the glittering sands of time

Illuminating the faeries wings of rhyme

Begun vanishing from their falling stars

And the faeries quickly flew back to their green Avatar

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. Thank you Barbara, and as you know after finalising these sort of dream projects, I feel hugely self satisfied with my achievement … and only we ourselves know how much time and effort we have put in during the process of producing such a body of work …. thanking you always for your wonderful support 🤗🌏😍
