Tea and Poetry

Today’s Tea Tidbit is a quote:

There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea.
-Henry James


The Christmas Spirit
by Kelly F. Barr

Yesterday you filled your plate and overate;
The pumpkin pie tasted great!
Today you’re worried about a few extra pounds,
So you jog the block, round and round.

Then you’re off to the mall
Making sure not to skip a single hall;
Searching out those Black Friday deals
And thinking about the next holiday meal.

Next stop is the Christmas tree farm
All decked out in holiday charm.
You pick out the perfect tree
And cut it down on hands and knees.

At home, with tree in stand, you string the lights–
No knots or tangles, and they all work to your delight.
You hang the ornaments in silver and gold
While drinking hot chocolate to stave off the cold.

Tomorrow the cookie baking starts
While the Christmas spirit grows in your heart.
But in your busyness, don’t forget
That child in the manger who loves you yet.

    • Janet,
      Thank you for stopping by and leaving such nice comments with cute pictures. I try to spend one day a week creating blog posts, however, this Christmas season has caused me to fall behind. I hope to catch up soon.
