Day 14 POEM: Over Midnight Tea

May 6, 2016

Over Midnight Tea, circa 2000


It's almost midnight

The moon is out

I'm all alone

Just the moon and I

My house is quiet

There is not a sound

But the clock striking midnight

Please come over and sit

Sit with me and chat

We'll have tea and cakes

Talk about our lives

Yours and mine

But I'm all alone

Just the moon and I

So I'll talk to my self

Discuss my life

Over midnight tea





I remember writing this one one night whilst drinking tea in my bedroom. I was in grade seven or eight and at that time I was considering making a book of my poetry. I remember after writing this one, thinking it would be a good title for a book. "Over Midnight Tea & Other Poems". I could picture the cover art, I still can. Funny the things that stick out in your mind.
