I'm a tiny bit eccentric.......
just a little hard-to-please.......
It might be evident most when
I'm fixing my cup-of-teas
I let it steep for just so long
then give the teabag a squeeze
I've cut down on my sugar now
so a scant half-teaspoon's good
Then slowly pour some whole milk in --
I'd use skim milk if I could --
Memories of my childhood days
bring visions of milk blue-white
Made from surplus dry milk beads
till Mom thought it was just right
- NOT ME! -
Getting back to my cup-of-teas
I gently stir with my spoon
Pause to see if the color's right
humming a teatime tune
Did I mention the water temp?
To a boil, but please, no more
Don't want to boil the flavor out
before the first cup I pour
Now check the color once again
then add 2 dribbles of milk
Sip a li'l sample from my spoon
Ah, my tea is smooth as silk
- JUST RIGHT! -
"Open your mouth and taste,
open your eyes and see --
how good God is.
Blessed are you who run to Him.
Psalm 34:8 (The Message)I
