I Was to Be Having Tea


I was to be having tea
But I was home with the flu
A little blue

I scowled at the banana
You call it ripe, I call it dead
Good for bread

Grapefruit ready
Tea to steep
I start to weep

But then I think
Do not dismay
Look at this day!

The sun is out
My head breathes free
And I have my tea

Your poem does portray just what we sometimes feel when not feeling well. I would have loved sitting there, having tea, grapefruit, and banana bread. Oh yummmm!

Steph-I read in an RSS feeder so almost never comment. However, I love to read your posts-and the poetry is wonderful. I saw this article and thought of you. http://www.networx.com/article/an-introduction-to-tea-gardens
