Ivor Steven

The Sum is One

One
Sky above
Five oceans bind us
The one air we breathe comes from
Trees

Behind The Stone

When looking for home 
If you roll away the stone 
You won’t be alone 

Lost For Words 

lost worlds 
lost wars 
lost objectives 
lost subjects
lost children                        

Cold Nights

Empty, I return unsold
The sheets are cold
No crease to hold
Nor unfold
