A Cup of Christmas Tea.. By thomas Hegg
The log was in the fireplace,
All spiced and set to burn.
At last, the yearly Christmas race
was in the clubhouse turn.
The card where in the mail,
all the gifts beneath the tree,
And 30 days reprieve
'till VISA could catch up with me.
A week before, I got a letter
from my old Great Aunt.
It read: "Of course, I'll understand
completely if you can't,
But if you have some time,
How wonderful if we,
Could have a little chat
and share a cup of Christmas tea.
Before my eyes and ears and nose
was Christmas past... alive...intact:
The scent of candied oranges,
of cinnamon and pine,
The antique wooden soldiers,
in their military line;
The porclein Nativity
I'd always loved so much...
My Spirit faily bolted,
Like a student out of class
And danced amoung the ornaments
of calico and glass.
She POured two cups. She smiled,
And then she she handed one to me,
And then, we settled back
and had a cup of Christmas tea.
