Afternoon Tea

Afternoon tea, a table for two

a special date for me and for you

A delectable tower, an edible treat

a delicate array of savoury and sweet

Picture perfect, feast your eyes

crustless fingers, mini cakes and pies

Egg, cress, grated cheese and ham

fruited scone, clotted cream and jam

Smoked salmon, tuna mayonnaise

strawberry tart with crème anglaise

Prawn on brown, cucumber on white

bonbons, petit fours and turkish delight

Vintage tablecloths, trimmed lace hems

crystal vases display wild flower stems

China cups and saucers, wedgewood blue

silver spoon, sugar cubes, one lump or two

Fresh dairy milk poured in first?

a refreshing brew to quench your thirst

Afternoon tea, a table for two

put a date in your diary for me and for you

Great rhythm and rhyme.

This sounds like my 'Hatters tea party'

You might have missed it, but never fear
on WOL it's always there.

This was very tasty as poems go.
