~*Tea For Two*~

I'm discontented with homes
that are rented so I have invented my own.
Darling this place is a lover's oasis
where life's weary chase is unknown.
Far from the cry of the city,
where flowers pretty caress the streams,
Cozy to hide in, to love side-by-side in.
Don't let it abide in my dreams.

Picture you upon my knee,
just tea for two and two for tea,
Just me for you and you for me, alone!
Nobody near us, to see us or hear us,
No friends or relations on weekend vacations,
We won't have it known, dear,
that we have a telephone, dear.
Day will break and you'll awake and start to bake
A sugar cake for me to take for all the boys to see.
We will raise a family, a boy for you, a girl for me,
Oh, can't you see how happy life would be?

You are revealing a plan so appealing I can't help but falling for you,
Darling, I planned it; can't you understand it
is yours to command it, so do.
All of your schemes I'm admiring,
they're worth desiring but can't you see,
I'd like to wait there for some future date dear;
it won't be too late, dear, for me.

Picture you upon my knee,
just tea for two and two for tea,
Just me for you and you for me, alone!
Nobody near us, to see us or hear us,
No friends or relations on weekend vacations,
We won't have it known, dear,
that we have a telephone, dear.
Day will break and you'll awake
and start to bake
A sugar cake for me to take
for all the boys to see.
We will raise a family, a boy for you,
a girl for me,
Oh, can't you see how happy life would be?

~*Welcome To Tea For Two*~

This page is dedicated to my
Grandmother, who I fondly refer to as "Mayma".
Me and all the other nine grandchildren.*smile*And thier children.
When I was a little girl, my mom, my sister and I would go visiting
to Mayma and Graypa's house often in Freeport, Maine. We had wonderful get togethers.
Picnics outside, lobster feeds for the weddings. A most special time was when it was time for just the ladies.
Mayma would invite my cousins and I to come to tea parties. She would bring out her delicate china tea set, and she made the most wonderful gingersnap cookies in the world.
The men folk would call this get together our "hen parties", but it made each of us feel special.
We would talk and laugh til our sides hurt.
What fond memories I have for that time in my life. I will carry them with me always.
Thank you Mayma, I love you so much.



Made with love,
