Throwback Friday, It’s Time, by Ivor Steven

2014-04-17-02-44-261 (2)

I wrote the original of this poem a long time ago, but I presented the piece on my blog site on July 2017…. I’ve submitted the poem a couple of times for publication, but alas the piece has yet to be published… maybe ‘it’s time’ to give this poem another try…


It’s Time

We’ll miss you

Mother Earth

Your splendour

And imposing style

From forest canopy’s

To the desert Nile

New creations

Beauty, gone


We’ll lose you

Father Time

Your rhythm

And stoic guile

From ancient history

To the future files

New millennia

Awaiting, gone



Ivor Steven (c)  July 2017

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 3 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.

    • Thank you Gael… yes I’ve posted it before… and putting the Cohen song with it was a new idea…..
      I’m going reasonable thanks…. although my Doc’ has told me to slow down a bit, and take it easy, until all my ‘test’ are done……..
