In attempting to enjoy a cup of tea…
I tend to douse it with too much cream.
And in cooling the heat the flavor pales.
Or if left untasted awhile tea turns bland.
Lukewarm tea, in a cup, is ne’er flavorful.
That’s the time I put the kettle on again.
In remaking, seeping, leaf can escape.
And so the need to return the kettle
to the circular burner.
