With tea for two and two for tea
Just me for you and you for me alone
~Tea for Two lyrics by Irving Caesar
I can't believe how quickly January flew by! I'm starting February's tea parties with a German three piece set I found last year featuring a couple strolling through a blooming garden.
The couple find a welcoming spot on the saucer,
and the young suitor plays a tune for his ladylove.
Here is a closer look of the picture in the teacup:
Shall I sing to you a song?
Of lovers lost and won?
Dare instead I mention
My own deep affection?
My heart's regard for you
Is both unending and true.
In dreams you are my own
but selfish wants alone
Are unworthy to be sung.
You are my swan,
white down painted by the dawn,
Enticing all with your brilliant hues
Until even I your light suffuse
You are my song
To you I belong.
~The minstrel & his ladylove
Together we are
a warm and fragrant tea,
to cut my bitterness
makes a perfect cup.
Thanks for stopping by! I'm joining these tea parties this week (even though I'm a little late!)
