A Tanka of Tea?

A Tanka of Tea?

A Tanka of tea?

“No, thank you!” and “No, sirree!”

I can say no more.

Never been a tea-lover;

I would show that tea the door.

  1. This is funny, you show the tea the door!!!! I love tea, I do love tea especially 5 o’clock tea,…. Thank you dear G, for your sharing and creative touches in the world of your words 🙂 Love, nia

  2. I’m a coffee man;
    and can neither sleep nor still;
    One cup and I’m up;
    after my second, buzzing;

    and my third I top the hill.

    Trying to write poetry as a reply is fun. It posted and disappeared just a line too soon. G:)

  4. ….. 🙂 This was nice, I am jumping now into the poetry, let me share with you,

    I am a tea one
    there is always tea kettle boiling in my kitchen
    but I am afraid no scones with jam and cream
    that I love so much
    because I am on diet…

    Thank you, dear G,
    Love, nia

  5. ………I missed to be in UK, you reminded me now, Burley Tea House (near Bournemouth) scones with jam were so delicious… But I haven’t tasted the Cornish way yet… Yes I know you live in Cornwall, but also are you Cornish naturally?

    • My Great-Great Grandfather’s Great- Great Grandfather

      My Great-Great Grandfather
      He was a Cornishman
      From the moment he was born
      Until the day he died
      He lived as he began.

      And my Great-Great Grandfather’s
      Great-Great Grandfather
      He was a Cornishman, too.

      He was a Cornishman, too

      Oh, my Great-Great Grandfather’s
      Great-Great Grandfather
      He was a Cornishman
      From the moment he was born
      To the day he died
      He lived as he began.

      And on the day he died
      (Upon the day he died)
      My Great-Great Grandfather’s
      Great-Great Grandmother cried:
      ‘You were my Cornish man,
      You were a Cornishman!’

      It’s a true story. G:)

  6. I am impressed so much now, there is a great story there. Next time, If we make a travel to UK, I really want to visit Cornwall… Thank you for this amazing sharing dear G, I am afraid you also talk in poetical way, sounds amazing too! Good Afternoon,
