Christmas cookies and a cup of tea!
Each December brings this memory.
Since you were not in school that afternoon,
We read together from a book; but soon,
Tiring a bit, we heard the clock strike three;
Decided we should have a cup of tea.
Just then the baker's knock was at the door
With Christmas cookies - sizes, shapes galore -
With pretty colored sugar. Funny how
One day stands out above the rest, and now
I still recall with deep nostalgic joy
That afternoon with you, dear little boy,
When each December brings the memory
Of Christmas cookies and a cup of tea.
~Ethyle Cole Ingle
Especially for you my friends.
We can't be together in reality perhaps, but
we can be together in spirit for a sweet little Christmas tea
and a little poetry reading. That's what people used to do way back when,
The recipe for my Sugar Cookies is on yesterday's post HERE.
Love and hugs,
