There are many occasions in a whole lifetime,
When one’s angst or calm moods seek a cuppa.
Blends and flavours of botanical fruity infusions,
Cafetieres percolating roasted coffee grounds.
Aromas invite a desire to participate and partake,
Comfort and sympathy are most easily found in cup.
Soothing variations or additions enhance taste buds,
Hot or cold refreshments offer a wide menu of delights.
Traditions of breakfast strengths to awaken mornings,
While afternoons relax with fresh scones and cream teas.
Formality rests itself upon exquisite saucers of bone china,
While teacups snuggle up and hug the informality of home.
