Cast In Marble


A new spring’s about to start 

Ten lost winters have weathered my heart 

And mud-larks still sing until dark


 

Bridges of dreams were crossed 

The ocean and river spanned 

Waters of love found 

  

Our true love ran deep 

Cascading over hidden rocks 

And sharp stones were softened by sand


The winds of time shredded

Our threadbare sails

And replaced the canvas sheets

With a bed of coffin nails


Her destiny is cast in marble 

Where I witness her natural sparkle

And recall a gracious everlasting smile 





Ivor Steven (c) Sept 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
