Cream Teas


A plumber did my leakage seal;
I had no other fears:
It seemed a wound no one could heal
Not in a thousand years.

Its pressure showed impressive force;
I dreamt of mighty seas;
My house was floating on a course,
Rock-cakes, scones and cream teas.

With apologies to Wordsworth 
A slumber did my spirit seal...

Based on the last of Wordsworth's Lucy poems. It's thought that 'Lucy' was more an imagined, literary devise for the poet's meditation and reflection, rather than an actual English girl who died young. Wordsworth himself considered them as 'experimental'.
