Sweet Tea

Sweet Tea, with a Lemon Twist
The ice clanking in crystal goblets,
glass mason jars and paper cups.

Sweet Tea, poured in the flavors
of the past with mint julep,
and lime slices split on glass sides

Sweet tea with sweet smiles
big eyed girls of wonder
with lace and skinned knees

Running through mud puddles 
Looking for their prince
in shinning armor to ride in on a wooden horse

Sweet tea served on innocent
trays of make believes and summer eves
of stars and moon dust 

covered with paper umbrellas 
of butterflies and sugared rims
to sparkle on her smile when drank

sweet tea glasses of memories
and kept in storehouse of
yesterday’s dream for tomorrow’s 

sweet tea…
