The morn is filled with the hazy spirits of All Hallow's Eve, in a misty blanket of air that refreshes the soul with poetry. It's a " November Morning ".
A tingling, misty marvel.
Blew hither in the night,
And now the little peach- trees
Are clasped in frozen light.
Upon the apple branches
An icy film caught.
With trailing threads of gossamer
In pearly patterns wrought.
The autumn sun, in wonder,
Is gayly peering through
This silver tissued network
Across the frosty blue.
The weather vane is fire tipped,
The honey suckle shows
A dazzling icy splendor,
And crystal is the rose.
Around the eaves of fringes
Of icicles that seem
To mock the summer rainbows
With many coloured gleam.
Along the walk, the pebbles
Are each a precious stone;
The grass is tasseled hoarfrost,
The clover jewel sown.
Such sparkle, sparkle, sparkle
Fills all the frosty air,
Oh, can it be that darkness
Is ever anywhere!

Now , don't you think that poetry and a cup of tea are a lovely way to start the day !!!!! I do, enjoy the brisk and musical air of November. I can hear the chickadees singing to the harmony of the little nuthatches that are frequenting our feeders.
To celebrate this invigorating month, I've chosen a teaset that fits perfectly into the mood of the day. ..... Tea for two and two for tea.... Won't you join me !!!!!
It's a Queen Anne cup and saucer that I recently bought at Value Village. Although it's a little worn around the edges, it's uplifting beauty sent me a twitter as I picked it up, put it down and walk away down the aisles three times.... Heaven knows, that I don't need another cup and saucer.
" Tweet Tweet " .. the song of the little bird kept ringing in my ear as I did circles throughout the store....
Most Queen Anne China dates to around the 1940's-1960's, which makes it vintage and a great addition to my collection.
It was just too pretty to resist.... I shall simply pour the tea into my pretty cup and create some teatime poetry ( sip sip). Here is my humble poem ( Tee Hee) It's called , "Tea Bird "...written by moi....
Pretty Tea Bird singing in sweet fragrance on my cup
Come, chant a song of joyfulness to fill my daytime up.
With hazy hours of falling leaves that dance around the sky,
To hood the world in golden hue, where earthly brown does lie.
The leaves are fading, falling,
Still, your song is bright and clear
Every note a-ringing
Sweet Autumn time is near.
The wind is whirling,twirling,
The brooks seems dry and numb
No babbling,nor gurgling,
Just a soft melodic hum.
I find my greatest inspiration from nature.
Today, I have found poetic inspiration in a cup filled with tea. Please do take the time to ponder some sweet inspiration for yourselves.
Thank You, for the pleasure of your " Sweet November" company.
Have an INSPIRING day !!!!!
