Poems -> Fun :  A Royal Jersey Cream Tea.
Tags: AnthonyFry  
The beauty of Raleighs dreams, held in Forts & Castles.
We imagine Elizabeth Castle, during the English Civil War.
A fiery eyed horse, thunder-beating hoofs fly a causeway.
Historic revelations, of gallantry, pirates, & highwaymen.
A Piper in the Castle, Royal music carried over St aubin bay.

King Charles II's wife, Queen Braganza had a tea mania.
That locked caddie, a Portuguese Queens aromatic magic.
Vigorous vapours, tea enthusiasm, that lingers longer.
Royal traditions, carried from her homeland in Portugal.
Lords and Lady's, had rich assumptions of spiced china teas.

Charles laid the foundations, for prize foreign tea drinking.
Gentlemen joking, in the presence of refind elegant lady's.
Exquisite niceties of etiquette, for an afternoon hour of tea.
Tea gossip not allowed was secrets, health, and sad news.
The pinkie used for balance, of the tea cup in the right hand.

Fruit jam and Jersey fresh cream, set fresh hot scones in style.
Royal Jersey cream tea not complete, without luxurious cream
The thrill of creative effort, " A Royal Jersey Cream Tea" is born.
Scones & wonders from St Quen, vraic buns from Gorey village.
A Royal Jersey Cream Tea, addiction born for Century's to come.

I love this very finely inked write, which imparts the story of how A Royal Jersey Cream Tea was initiated, so well to the reader. The story is beautifully narrated through excellent word choice and delightful visual detail. A lovely smooth flow to the write, which is eloquently expressed. A truly charming poem, which I have so enjoyed reading. Thank You for kindly sharing. Blessings....

Thank You so kindly for your very nice comments, It took me about a year to put this together, after going back through time reading all about the great history of this period, and also visiting places mentioned in the poem. I thoroughly enjoyed every moment of it. I went as far back as the neolithic times in Jersey in the Parish of St Quen trying to get a lead on the "Scone" but the nearest I could get was the "Griddle Cake" and a Jersey "Vraic Bun" that where often eaten on the shore when collecting "Vraic" "Seaweed for the Jersey Royal Potato". Thank You Marie for being my first comment on World Poetry also. :)

THANK YOU so very much for imparting to me the history of your lovely poem. I really enjoyed reading about all the research and for you, I can only imagine how very interesting it was)as it was for me to read it) and also, it has had to have been a labour of love. It was worth all the effort and energy you spent, to have such a nice write at the end of it. My late Mom used to bake the most beautiful griddle bread - I would give anything to taste it again, with lots of beautiful butter! Thank you for reviving that lovely memory for me, bless you. I will return to read more of your beautiful work and again, thank you for kindly sharing it. I've so enjoyed reading it. Blessings always......
