tea still not hotIMG_3469

patience is needed key

sweet glee

small pleasures

Tea Party with Friends

 

Out on the lawn under a tree

with tables set quite daintily

a floral scent inside the tent

where Bethel ladies take their tea.

 

Cookie for you, a scone for me

small sandwiches cut diagonally

drink hot or cold, pour flavors bold

when Bethel ladies take their tea.

 

Our host is Ms. Mary Jo Lee

a proper southern belle is she

invites us chat, imagine that’s

why Bethel ladies take their tea.

 

Wear fancy hat to grand partay

recite a poem or play croquet

switch chairs on run, stir in good fun

how Bethel ladies take their tay!
