Love Comes at Teatime
“Sit with me,” my husband says,
“And have a cup of tea.”
I devour four cups
To his one

   Love Comes at Teatime

“Sit with me,” my husband says,
“And have a cup of tea.”
I devour four cups
To his one,
His talking being slower
Than my drinking.

How sweet to listen
And to savour
The time and the flavour and the tea.
For love truly does come at teatime.
 
from Musings With a Cuppa-The Poetry of Tea,
Susan Patterson
2004


Author Comments:

Golly this is sweet, isn't it?  It is older poem in the Earlene Grey collection, when the author was combining whimsy with more serious subjects.   But often people's thoughts turn to love.  Usually it is romantic love.  There are, of course, as many ways to love as there are people.  So let us not be stuck in a rut of how and when to love. Well, we do have to be appropriate though.  Sit down.  Have a cup of tea.  Share your life with someone who needs care.       skp
