Tea with Isa


 We had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guests in all-
Just Marth, myself and she.
We ate up all the sandwiches, and next we sipped the tea;
Then Niece gave Bunny several gulps
and to the dollies, three.

When little girls come here to play, we have a tiny spot
Un-der the stairs, little space, where above, we always trot
'Tis where we go to share and laugh
And joy over their smiles-
And watch them be the little girls we once were ourselves.
It's where we play and sing and talk
In accents very foreign
                                                      And sip our tea and eat our cakes

On afternoons in Autumn.

So, so adorable. I'm sure little Isa will remember her special tea times.
