Tea at The Ritz

At The Ritz – afternoon tea
Cup and saucer balanced on knee
Sandwiches with egg and cress
Bits dropping out on my dress.
Cakes filled with rich pure cream,
A dieters dream.
“Do have another cup of tea”
“No, thank you, not for me”
“How about another eclair?”
“Oh no! I wouldn’t dare,
I really have had my fill,
And just you wait till you get the bill!”

  1. Oh how I have dreamed of having Tea at the Ritz! Yes the huge bill, I can only imagine! Anne, if you have been more fortunate than I to have had Tea at the Ritz…please write a poem for me about it, that way I can ‘experience’ it somewhat should I never in my lifetime end up going there. My friend from the US asked me to have a Cream Tea for her…where??? I don’t know, but I guess the Ritz has it!!
