Let's Have Tea

A Cup of Tea 

When the world is all at odds 
And the mind is all at sea 
Then cease the useless tedium
 And brew a cup of tea. 

There is magic in its' fragrance,
 There is solace in its' taste;
 And then laden moments vanish 
Somehow into space. 

And the world becomes a lovely thing!
 There's beauty as you'll see;
 All because you briefly stopped 
To brew a cup of tea.

                                        (J. Jonker, Amsterdam, c.1670)

Are you enjoying this mild winter?

Warm and cozy...
 inside your little cottage?

Dreaming of spring ...

and what seeds to order?

Maybe you are scanning cook books...

Dreaming about cakes and petifores

Maybe you're just bored and
need to visit with a friend....

Maybe some tea
and scones is 
what you need....

A cucumber sandwich would 
be a delight indeed....

Would you like to come 
over and have tea 
with me?

  1. This is such a charming post. The poem and images warm the heart on this cold Michigan evening. I spent my day quilting while waiting for Spring.
