High Tea

I had a little tea party
This afternoon at three.
'Twas very small-
Three guests in all-
Just I, myself and me.
Myself ate all the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea;
'Twas also I who ate the pie
And passed the cake to me.

Jessica Nelson North, American poet and author (1891-1988) in "The Tea Party"

I, myself and me joined Cousin S for a little tea party in a lovely tea room situated in a turn of the century home in the village of Jordan. Tea and a nice chat go together so well -- not to mention how well they accompany fresh scones with preserves and cream. A wonderful tradition!
