[Poetry Friday] For Tea Lovers

poetry friday

Fats here.

Happy to contribute to Poetry Friday this week! My dear friend, Megan, is going to have her birthday in a few days. She loves tea, so I thought I’d share a poem by Thich Nhat Hahn to celebrate! Hooray!

Many thanks to Irene Latham of Live Your Poem for hosting the Poetry Friday round-up!


Drink Your Tea


Fats is the Assistant Manager for Circulation Services at the Wayne County Public Library in Wooster, Ohio. She considers herself a reader of all sorts, although she needs to work on her non-fiction reading. Fats likes a good mystery but is not too fond of thrillers. She takes book hoarding seriously and enjoys collecting bookmarks and tote bags. When she is not reading, Fats likes to shop pet apparel for her cat Penny (who absolutely loathes it).

  1. Wow, that is a way to drink tea that could take a lifetime to master. It’s another definition for joy. As are the smiles of those charming women in hats. Happy Birthday to Megan.


  2. What a lovely poem! I drink tea like a fiend all day, but don’t usually stop to full enjoy it. I may have to schedule in a break for slow tea enjoyment.
