The Red Mug.
It likes coffee with hot chocolate and half n' half best.
But is learning to appreciate tea.
The Red Mug prefers Peach or Peppermint with Agave stirred in.
But not especially herbal teas, and NEVER Licorice!
The Red mug likes mornings
And afternoon escapes.
Evenings are nice too, but only with Rocky Road ice cream and milk poured over.
The Red Mug is cheerful all the time.
Content to sit on the shelf when I don't have the heart,
and happy in the hand when I do.
I could probably learn a thing or two from The Red Mug.
Perhaps she'll whisper a few lessons
while I sip
steaming sweet chocolate
and peek at my little son
I hope so.
