Christmas Tea

Christmas tea

Taffeta rustles
china clinks against silver
soft Christmas music plays
at the annual Christmas tea

Even children are attired in calm
letting butter mints melt slowly on their tongues
no Ho, Ho, Ho’s here or jingling of bells
at the annual Christmas tea

When my daughters were young, I would host a mother-daughter Christmas tea every year. Everyone would get dressed up and we’d have lots of treats. It was a respite from the hectic holiday hustle.
