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 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.

Lovely cup & saucer AND lovely quote. It is amazing how taking just a small amount of time to enjoy a cup of tea or anything else we love, can bring a few moments of bliss!ReplyDelete
Beautiful poem....so true. And a lovely photo.ReplyDelete
I just stopped the madness with an orange. I really wanted a bowl of potato chips. Ha! A cup of tea will be my next go-to thing. What a sweet little poem about the benefits of tea.ReplyDelete
Oh goodness, I didn't realize there was a Royal Albert pattern with "peppermint" in the name! I need one of those for when I'm sipping mint teas!ReplyDelete
I love that variation of Old Country Roses. I'm drinking my morning tea from a blue and white china mug - a good way to start my day. I hope yours is full of joy.ReplyDelete
Beautiful teacup and poem!ReplyDelete
Beautiful cup, beautiful words! Thanks for the share.ReplyDelete
Beautiful! I'm busier than a queen bee in a beehive - getting ready to take our cabin-on-wheels to a girlfriends' campout this weekend. In the middle of it all I MUST stop for a few moments to savor a good cup of tea. I always have a tea kettle, teapot and special teacup that stays in our trailer. It goes where I go!ReplyDelete
Beautiful tea poem to accompany a gorgeous teacup!ReplyDelete
I like the Peppermint Damask, very pretty colour with the roses.ReplyDelete
So glad you linked to Tea In The Garden! Lovely cup and saucer!ReplyDelete
I used to start my Tea Talks with that poem!ReplyDelete
