Let Us Grow (a Memento)

The flowers still stand tall and strong

After the ghastly storm

Not long

They cry, before the bees do swarm

All day they hum their song


They remain a unified team

Work together they say

Then beam

Enjoy our colourful display 

Retain us in your dreams


“The Great Gates Of Kiev”, Writer(s): Greg Lake, Keith Noel Emerson
How amazingly appropriate for todays world, written in 1971

Come forth, from love’s pyre
Born in life’s fire,
Born in life’s fire
Come forth, from love’s pyre
In the burning, of our yearning
For life to be
And in pain there will (must) be gain
New Life!

Stirring in salty streams
And dark hidden seams
Where the fossil sun gleams

They were, sent from (to) the gates
Ride the tides of fate
Ride the tides of fate
They were, sent from (to) the gates
In the burning of our yearning
For life to be

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. They were a favourite band of mine back then, they were so innovative and their lyrics were so powerful …. Frankie has been listening to a lot of Emerson Lake & Palmer later. 🎵🐶🤗😍

    1. Thank you Sue, and it’s been a thrill for me to be an appointed at Coffee House Writers Magazine and to have a poem of mine published every fortnight in the American online magazine… I’m not how big their readership is but my articles get up 200 visits each fortnight 🤗🌏📘💕
