Tea & Poetry


I'd like to be a teabag,
And stay at home all day -
And talk to other teabags
In a teabag sort of way . . .

I'd love to be a teabag;
And lie in a little box -
And never have to wash my face
Or change my dirty socks . . .

I'd like to be a teabag,
An Earl Grey one perhaps,
And doze all day and lie around
With Earl Grey kind of chaps.

I wouldn't have to do a thing,
No homework, jobs or chores -
Comfy in my caddy
Of teabags and their snores.

I wouldn't have to do exams
I needn't tidy rooms,
Or sweep the floor or feed the cat
Or wash up all the spoons.

I wouldn't have to do a thing,
A life of bliss - you see . . .
Except that once in all my life
I'd make a cup of tea!
- By Peter Dixon

From I'd Like to be a Teabag (anthology), BBC Books

I love tea poems! I wrote my own on my blog! Love the thought of teabags snoring away in the box!

Good morning Hannah and cheers for stopping by! I will visit your blog and look for your tea poetry!

Look for poetry in the tag cloud on the side of the page when you are on the blog and you should be able to find it :)

I have just been to your Facebook page. Basic blog etiquette would suggest that you at least acknowledge where you came across this content. I will expect a link to my blog to appear on your posts soon.
