Walking Home


Tis early, very early on a dank and foggy morn

So early, all the front bedroom lights are out ’til dawn.

And the groaning of lustful lovers, have all been timed out

Even the yapping old canines, are unusually burnt-out


I’ve been wandering these darkly streets, groping on trust

Looking for her, a little piece of wonderous stardust

All I found was a discarded mug of leftover moonshine

Oh yeah, just like the decadent old days of whiskey and wine


Intoxication setting in again, I’m dreaming unsound

A girl so mysterious, out here, where to be found

I stumble, forgetting how to walk, and I hit the ground

And it’s the end, another fallen night out on the town

Ivor Steven (c) August 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
