Ode to the Teacup & Saucer

I recently came across this poem that I wrote when I had my storefront in Cookstown.  Enjoy!

Ode to the Teacup & Saucer

There is nothing quite like

The experience of

Consuming the most divine

Substance here on Earth

 

But how we drink it

Is what qualifies it

And gives it such a title

 

The teacup and saucer

There is nothing quite like it

When seeking satisfaction

There is no way around it

 

Try a mug, a bowl, a glass

I challenge you to find

A better way to brighten your mood

 

Its elegance and grace

The beauty of its shape and colours

Can give stature to even

The grubbiest of men

 

The aroma is incomparable

The flavour unmistakable

When sipped from it

 

The teacup and saucer

Commands your respect

It demands an experience

Unlike any other

 

If only to take a moment

It allows one to reflect

And bathe in its splendour

 

So without further adieu

Ladies and Gentlemen

I give you

The teacup and saucer
