Cupcakes & Tea

Everyone come to the willows.  Join me for cupcakes & tea. 

The table cloth will be neatly pressed and the silver will shine like a glittering sea.

Everyone come to the table and sit beside the stream. 

The flowers will be yellow and pink and the bowls full of sugar and cream. 

Everyone come to the party. Wear your hat and gloves. 

The cupcakes will be scrumptious and the sun will shine down from above. 

Everyone come and be welcome. Bring your dearest friends. 

The dishes will be darling and the tea pot steaming with flowery blends.

Everyone come to the meadow. We’ll dance upon the lawn. 

Our dresses will be fresh and clean and we’ll sing the merriest songs.

Everyone come and be still as the sun sets over the trees. 

The blankets and pillows will be soft and warm as the stars peek through the leaves. 

Yes, everyone come to the willows. Join me for cupcakes & tea. 

You will know that I’m your friend and you are loved by me.
