Behind it, yet within our reach, is joy...
Take joy!"

WHEN WITCHES COME TO TEA




Here is another post from last Halloween.  I hope you enjoy it!





When Witches Come To Tea...









The witches are arriving
It's a wonderful sight to see
How about you?
Will you be ready?
When the witches come to tea.







They come from all directions
You can hear them from afar
They park their brooms
But you can't tell
Exactly where they are.













They swoop down at your table
Never knocking at the door
You'd never know they'd been there
As they've never come before.








They are very still and quiet
Not scary in the least
Their manners are impeccable
And they thoroughly enjoy the feast.







So do what you are able
Stoke the fire and fill the pot
'Cause when witches come to tea
They like it nice and hot.

Me, The Resident Cottage Witch, 2012












Is your kettle on?....Judy

  4. I love this...and not surprised...I love witches! What an adorable post! Every year on Halloween our neighbor down the street sits on her front patio dressed as a witch drinking her tea (wine). There is just something so captivating about witches...but then again my first witch was Samantha Stevens!
    Happy Halloween!!!

  9. Hello Judy,
    What a captivating "Witchy" post.
    Halloween is not celebrated here. However my 2 grandchildren in Lisbon attend international school..so they celebrate.. my Audrey Marie loves it. I am off to lisbon next week..and we will buy some Witchy stuff for her room and to scare mum and dad.
    My daughter in Switzerland also celebrates..
    I might make a few little decorations.
    My house is open.. kettle on all the time.. will call you for tea nearer Halloween.
    great post
    thank you Judy
