Time for Tea

I’ve enjoyed writing for many years. I'm dedicating more time to the craft in my retirement days.

We used to say

We wish everyday

Could be that way

A party that never ends

Kinda like Lemmy

Who never hung over

‘Cuz he never stopped drinking

But you can’t drink all day

If you don’t start in the morning

That’s some kind of warning

Or is it advice?

Sounds so nice, let’s say it twice:

Can’t drink all day if you don’t start in the morning

Though now I like tea


Not a teetotaler, mind you

Just a guy who likes

The odd bit of sweet & spicy

Original recipe

In my seidel

And something minty in a mug

For my bride

And we’ll sit side by side

Watching the rain

Through the window pane

Warm up our insides

On those windy fall days

Like today


Like I say

We used to pray


Could be that way

And now instead we say

Please grant me a day

Just one more

And then another

Of any kind

As long as its full

And my mind

And my heart

Neither of them pine

For olden days

Like I say

Let’s make hay

With this here day

That’s come our way

‘Cuz we don’t know when

This adventure’s gonna end

But it doesn’t have to be a fiesta

A bash

A banquet

We could just set

Our cups on a saucer

And rock in this loveseat together

All day
