Calico Tea


Teddy bear and me
drink calico tea.

It’s full of giggles
with sprinkles of wiggles.

Sit down and we’ll share.
There’s plenty to spare.


On our blanket of sun
we always have fun.

So come and be friends
where the smiles never end.

It’s as easy you see
as drinking calico tea.

Really sweet. Reminds me of "muffin tea" , my two youngest had a plastic muffin than fit perfectly inside the plastic tea cup - and we would have picnics and enjoy "muffin tea". ;)

I adore that bear and your rhyme is perfect for a teddy bear picnic! I especially love the word calico which adds both a cadence and imaginative element to the poem.
