Sleet spins down in an endless way
slivers of cold, a bleak-filled day
Wood burns with a crackling spark
curtains drawn against the dark.
Tea by the fire _ fresh-baked bread
marmalade - honey _ jam to spread
orange cake with a sugar-rum glaze
muffins _ buttery scones on a tray.
English porcelain _ antique spoons
leaf-shaped cookies _ macaroons
the fire burns to a soft warm glow
sleet spins quietly into snow.
(Tea, anyone? ... all are welcome!)
