I originally wrote this poem in February 2018

Flowers For A Honey-bee

Sagging like a half-broken branch

On a newly planted olive tree

In need of gentle husbandry

A new growth, a strong bud

To eventually replace thee

A younger twig for all to see

Alas, lack of nurturing stifled glee

And no fresh flowers for a honey-bee

Ivor Steven (c) February 2018

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 4 years, and writing poems for 20 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
