The China Blue Teapot

Sarah’s mother purchased a teapot

from a peddler one bright summer day

China blue and dainty in style, it was

She had thought to put it away

But instead she took down two teacups

and two saucers most fragile and fine

She placed the treasures upon the table

Like a queen who is ready to dine

Then most cordially she invited

to join her in high tea

and they chatted like proper ladies do

in castles far over the sea

Effecting their best tea-time manners

with pinkies of course on display

They gossiped of queens and kings and knights

and the dragons those knights must slay

Grand weddings were planned to some lucky prince

as fairies grant wishes galore

and everyone lived happily- ever- after

at our table next to the kitchen door

Such a pleasant interlude filled completely with love

A scene bathed in warm golden light

Something so simple and yet so priceless

My heart holds the memory tight

And I now have the china blue teapot

An angel flew to Heaven and left it behind

How I wish I could go back to that place in my childhood

To spend one more day, one more moment in time

I'm about crying in my key board. To me this is what poetry is all about. Pinching an emotional chord in a reader. I just posted a write on my grandma. Before she got real sick she wanted me to pick out something of hers to remember her by. I didn't want anything so she picked out her childhhood tea set and told me to keep it nice for my children someday.
Wonderful write that gives so much!

What a lovely tea party. What a wise woman not to stow the treasure but to hand down a priceless memory. Fine work, lilac. ML
