The Tea Party

Steam rises from a cup of tea
and we are wrapped in history,
inhaling ancient times and lands,
comfort of ages in our hands.
-Faith Greenbowl-

Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage. -Catherine Douzel-

I'm sending you love and tea,
To warm your winter's day.
Think of me as you pour your cup
And all the good things we would say.
If we could be together now
Instead of miles apart,
We'd sip our teas and memories,
The sweet warmth fills the heart.
-Susan Young-

I wish we could sit down together,
And have a cup of tea,
But since we can't
When you have this one,
I hope you'll think of me.

My copper kettle whistles merrily
and signals that it is time for tea.
The fine china cups are filled with the brew.
There's lemon and sugar and sweet cream, too.
But, best of all
there's friendship, between you and me.
As we lovingly share, our afternoon tea.
-Marianna Arolin-

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guest in all-
Just I, myself and me.
Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.
-Jessica Nelson North-

If I could take your Troubles,
I would toss them in the Sea.

But since I can't, I'm sending you,

My favorite cup of tea.

I'm a little teapot, short and stout
Here is my handle, here is my spout

When I get all steamed up, hear me shout

Just tip me over and pour me out!
