May I Sip Tea With You?

Poem By David Taylor

Are you busy this weekend,
could I visit you and sip tea?
I would like to know you better
before I regret I did not see
more of your gentle warmth
behind a glowing smile
and be in the presence
of your kind heart
that has travelled many miles.
It would be a short distance
to come and meet with you
but I think that in our meeting
our minds may travel far
to places never seen
by the tired but sparkling eyes
that have quietly witnessed
to all the places we have been
we can speak of babbling brooks
of cosmic forces
much loved books
because within our hearts
is such poetry
behind that mundane task
of simply sipping tea.

A gentle nostalgic read reminiscent of Agatha Christie's, Miss Marple. love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
All I can think, is what a lovely cup of tea it would be when accompanied by conversation with one who writes such fine poetry. Thank you David.
Lots of things can be said over a cup of tea, where would we be with out a cuppa. Very nice missive and an enjoyable read. Leaves me thirsty I think I will put the kettle on. Love and hugs Ernestine XXX
The forgotten art of genteel conversation, that masked the dance of love, recalled with such perfection!
