Tea time


Dainty doilies on tables
Napkins and silverware
Will you sit at table
and share tea time bites.

Tea cups on saucers
A pot of tea awaits
Cream puffs and scones
Let’s indulge at tea time.

Sets of sandwiches enticing
Cupcakes and English muffins
Enjoy the taste and scent
A spread so delicious.

Chocolate cakes and cream cakes
A bite taken, a taste of luxury
A cup of tea with milk and sugar
A sip taken, brings comfort.

Tea time at home
Set in the dining room
or outside in the garden
Simple, yet elegant.

High tea at a hotel
The dining room in such splendour
A spread filled with richness
Luxury written all over.

Pouring tea into a cup
Biting into a muffin
Sipping tea, delectable
Tea time is to be enjoyed.

By C.E. Pereira



I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. In recent years, the younger generation have added on to include spouses from the Philippines, Nigeria and Russia. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
