Three Muses Challenge - A nice cup of tea

The lines of verse are from a poem by Rupert Brooke, best known for his WW1 Poetry and dying on the battlefield in France.
Image of woman from Land of Nod Collage Sheets. The cup is by Berna Datema of SBG but is greatly altered. The background papers are by Phuong Ton at SBG.

  15. This moved me Marie... especially as I recognised the verse. I used to love reading the war poets - all that time spent in the most terrible circumstances produced such wonderful words and penmanship... Thanks for the lovely words you left on my blog!! Glad I made you laugh!

  18. This is marvellous Marie - I love how the background reminds me of the surface of a cuppa just after you've stirred it. I studied Rupert Brooke for my English Literature exam many moons ago at school and can still remember some of his poetry. Unfortunately, what I remember even better is Peter Sellers' version of the poem you used which ended with the waitress saying "Sorry dear, honey's off"!!

  22. There's something rather mystical about this. Are we looking into the bottom of the cup seeing the future. There's a poignancy with the poetry too - knowing that for poor Rupert and so many like him, time would stop soon and there would be no more honey for tea. I'm seeing a lot of meaning in this!

  29. Oh you are so clever to choose the perfect quote to transport us to an English country village for a comforting cup of tea. That coupled with your use of lovely spicy colours and superb laying makes this a scrumptious piece Marie.
