Tea In The Morning

Tea in the morning
Kettles whistling to heat
Low lights are burning
Like candles there to see

Find a cup that's on the rack
Take the bag that can be dipped
Like instant magic before your eyes
The transformation now begins

Change from hot liquid pool
To an orange herbal mist
Add some sugar or some lemon
Stir the contents held within

For this is tea in the morning
With steam on your lens
Take a sip from the cup
Feel the potion start to cleanse
