Time For Tea
Line up, little ones; it’s time for tea!
The sugar bowl is piled up high,
The jug full with fresh cream,
Would you care for blueberry pie?
Line up, Bunnykins and Betsy,
Snoozums, Theo and Glen,
We’ll play games, like Itsy-Bitsy
Dress-up and hide-and-seek again!
Perhaps a neighbour might call on us?
Miss Sally from Toybox down the Way
We’ll make cakes and tea and make a fuss,
While she shows us her pretty bouquet.
I’ll offer around some strawberry tarts,
Followed by raspberry ice,
Biscuits baked in the shape of hearts,
And some lemon tea I think would be nice.
Tea time is over, and Betsy is sleepy,
Theo’s eyes droop and Glen lets out a yawn
The table is littered with party debris
While Bunnykins and Snoozums are withdrawn
Miss Sally heads off home down the Way,
We’ll wave her goodbye from the door,
It’s been a most wonderful day,
Oh, we shall indeed have more!
Line up, little ones; it’s time for bed!
We’ll lay down now to sleep,
Upon my pillow you can rest your head,
And slip into slumber deep.
