Tea Time



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.

Now when you have a cup of tea in Tennessee do you have it the right way - the British way? Milk and a little sugar... no sign of lemons? Lots of troubles can be diminished over a cup of tea.

This is why I enjoy your blog, it's the simple pleasures. The way you find comfort in a pretty teapot, a lovely flower, a warm Spring day or a cozy fire. You capture these moments, hold them up to the light, and remind us that it's the little things that make each day a treasure.

The little poem makes me want to brew a cup of tea. I do so want to be a tea drinker. You folks are so special.

I agree, a cup of hot tea certainly calms the mind.

This is just the most lovely post! The teapot is beautiful, the napkin is beautiful and the poem is just spot on. I love it. Now excuse me while I go get a cuppa.
