Tea Party Jabberwocky




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.

I read your little poem
And I began to cry
Because you didn't invite
Me, myself and I

I hope your weekend is as delightful as your pictures...a real wonderland.

Hello Jo! What a sweet poem and I love the photo's especially the lion's head fountain and the stone tub. I hope if and when I get back over to England that I get wonderful pictures like these. It looks as though my sister will be coming over here from England this fall..haven't seen each other since 99! I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that it all works out. Enjoy your day and your weekend....Maura :)

Just love your wonderful poems, and this one brightened my day (or night as it is now).

Your garden is a magic place. Love the fountain.

Have a great weekend.

What a beautiful little tea party! I think I've got a couple of friends of mine who might be able to attend mine, too. Thanks for the inspiration, and the lovely little part of the universe that you create.

The three of you had a wonderful setting for your tea party. Me, myself and I often carry on fascinating conversations.

Lovely tea party and gorgeous pictures. Where do you find them, I wonder? There is nothing like tea on the lawn with the scent of lavender wafting in the breeze, is there.
