Time For Tea

by Debra White

Write a Kyrielle Contest Winner 

There's nothing like a cup of tea
to warm you from the inside out,
to pick you up, to quench your thirst,
to hit the spot with liquid clout.

If you are feeling under par,
there's nothing like a cup of tea
and conversation with a friend,
to bring some comfort instantly.

Some nights you simply can't switch off,
your mind's awake and sleep won't come.
There's nothing like a cup of tea
to calm your thoughts (just add some rum!)

I think I'll put the kettle on
and make a cuppa just for me.
Perhaps I'll have a cookie too...
There's nothing like a cup of tea!


Writing Prompt
A kyrielle is made of quatrains that rhyme. Each stanza (that is a quatrain) has a line that repeats, so a line from a previous stanza. That line usually (but does not necessarily have to) be the last line in the stanza. Each line in the poem has eight syllables. There is no limit to the number of stanzas. Usually there are three or more stanzas. Any type of rhyme scheme can be used. More information and an example.
