Sweet Tea Day



Sweet tea

the wine of the South

along with decadent treats

sweet to the mouth



A wonderful sunny afternoon

enjoying a glass of sweet cold tea

such wonderful memories

of stories told to me


Tales of  a party

in a story of old

tea thrown overboard

high taxes to withhold



An elderly woman

reading the tea leaves

telling of the future

each leaf that she sees


Then the story

with a rabbit and mad hatter

a wonderful tea party

imagination in the matter


Drinking sweet tea

cooling on this summer day

reading short stories

enjoying life this way
