This little snippet is a result of the couplet in my first versions of Sonnet 5 (The Second Deluge). It will most likely be worked into a poem worthy in itself.

The Virtues of Tea

It's time to let the civil man emerge;
We need an avatar to kindly shew
That tea can be the humanizing scourge,
Indeed, a Flood of gentlemanly brew
Is just the thing we need to truly purge
This world; mayhap to even start anew!

I'm partial to a nice cup of tea
with honey quite often.

A warming write, it flows
over the reader like tea flows
warm down the throat.

Thomas this is just like a cup of hot tea, soothing, comforting and able to make it all better. i loved this snippet!

Excellent work and fantastic layout! I wish I liked tea--I only force myself to drink it when I am sick!!

A pretty tall order, even for tea! (But then I'm a coffee man...)

Now I could not resist this title thomas, there is nothing that cannot be sorted out over a refreshing cup of Tea, the arabic nations drink mint. You have the essence of peace in your sweet poem to be sure. Smiling at you, taking honey in mine tonight, Tai

Love it!!
