Branksome Dinner Set
Cold mornings are to lift me to your smile,
This bird boned tableware, so thin, light weight,
Your gracious, timely action, full of style.
So curl your hands ‘neath powder blue, and wile,
And cup a cloud of steam against your face,
Cold mornings are to lift me to your smile.
We teacups wear no halos, sure, but I’ll
Reglaze the blue of Mary’s baked in grace
Her timeless gesture, classy, full of style,
As families grow more stories pile up, while
Boards groan with hued ceramics song ‘till late,
When summer nights are to lift me to your smile.
The gravy tide, it lifts all boats on high
So raise a toast to bread and butter plates,
Sunday roasts are to lift me to your smile,
A timeless set. So classy. Full of style.
