Birthday Tea

Screaming kids
Full of joy
Dash to and fro
Playing games
Entertaining themselves
As adults are lost
Deep in conversation
Celebrating the birthday
Of one of their own
Turned seventy
A few weeks ago
My all-knowing computer
Flashed an announcement
On a Saturday morning
When I sat to write
So an invite was sent
My friend arrived
Booster seat catalog in hand
All she would accept
Beyond well wishes
Was a simple cup of tea
To warm out
The cold February morning
