At Tea THE kettle descants in a cosy drone, And the young wife looks in her husband's face, And then in her guest's, and shows in her own Her sense that she fills an envied place; And the visiting lady is all abloom, And says there was never so sweet a room.

Betraying nothing in look or voice The guest sits smiling and sips her tea, And he throws her a stray glance yearningly.

It is only for your love alone that the poor will forgive you the bread you give to them.
