A Cup of Tea

A Cup of Tea

When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing!
There’s beauty as you’ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.

"Poetry is the mainstay of oral tradition and, over centuries, can communicate 
the innermost values of diverse cultures.

In celebrating World Poetry Day, March 21, UNESCO recognizes the unique

ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind."
