You bring your minute,

And I’ll bring mine

Let’s share another joke,

While we have a little time

We can drink our ciders slowly,

And study the falling snow

Sit here a while longer,

With a few moments more.




Aunt Mary’s Teapoy


When elves visited Aunt Mary’s hut

She laid the table with fruit, rum-and-milk, biscuits with nut

All aligned in queues on two sides,

Unless all off the teapoy’s short leg slides,

Gone with a fault in the carpenter’s cut!
