Poetry Teatime: A tea poem

Poetry Teatime for the soul

Enjoy this poem with your Tuesday Teatime:

Afternoon Tea
by Marianna Jo Arolin

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 Jo’s first book of poetry, “Here In My Garden,” was published in 1999 by Watermark Press. Her poem, “Afternoon Tea,” is included in a lovely volume of poetry by Harvest House Publishers entitled, The Art of Tea and Friendship (affiliate link) illustrated by Sandy Lynam Clough.
