Time for tea!
Monsieur Rabbit came to tea
the other day…
First, Monsieur ate a little salad with his sandwich
sipped on a large teacup filled with iced tea
(since it was a hot day).
He also ate the season’s tastiest green grapes
with just a hint of frost
on their cool spring~green skins.
After chatting awhileabout the wonderful weather
the area has had of late,
Monsieur was delighted to nibble on
wonderful chocolat in his muffin!
“Perfaitement délicieux!” enthused
my new friend.
“Mais bien sûr,”
But, of course, I replied with the utmost sincerity.
“S’il vous plait!”
And so we enjoyed each other’s company whiling away
the warm afternoon,
listening to birds chattering in the trees,
and a more contented day
there never was…
A bientôt, dear friends!
