Grasshoppers’ Hallelujah

At night, it’s my time to bleed

As I’m slowly going to seed

My video picture’s blurred

I’ll take my film shaken, not stirred


There I was, crawling on dirty paws

When my dream drifted into pause

An impostor interrupted my show

As I was climbing Mount Kosciuszko

Bathing there in warm winter snow

Waiting for my spring flowers to grow


I’m overseeing the green valley below

Where bees and dragonflies are buzzing to and fro

Tree ferns are shading the moist forest floor

I see faeries singing from under the Sycamores

And they’re dancing to music that sounds familiar

A classic song by the whistling caterpillar

Accompanied by the violin tunes of grasshoppers

And I hear the mystical rhythm of nature’s Hallelujah





Ivor Steven (c) Feb 2021

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. View all posts by ivor20
