High tea

all the way from Devon

all the way from Devon

Today we enjoyed splendid fare: high tea, with clotted cream all the way from Devon. A very nice poet friend of the SPL popped in, and since one wouldn’t really chow clotted cream unaccompanied, he brought some scones and jam too. There is apparently a Japanese proverb that declares ‘If man has no tea in him, he is incapable of understanding truth and beauty’. When 5 ladyfolk of the library have tea AND scones and clotted cream and jam, are they invincible?

One Response to “High tea”


  1. I think you shall all have to re-read Philip Levine’s poem “What Work Is.” Nowhere does he mention clotted cream or scones. Decadent! I am sooooo jealous. (And if you’re invincible I want to hear the lot of you singing “I Am Woman”).
