ONCE UPON A DREAM; Brew Me a Cup...



A Night Cap

Brew me a cup for a winter's night
For the wind howls loud and the furies fight

Spice it with love and stir it with care
And I'll toast to your bright eyes, my sweetheart fair

By Minna Thomas Antrim
1902

Just came across this wonderful poem and wanted to share it with you all.  It makes me dream of winter and snow and snuggly blankets and all the things I miss during the warm months of summer...ah well, soon be summer solstice, when the dark season makes its most welcome return.

  1. I love this poem!! We are going to go down to the sea late this evening for the Summer Solstice as it's only a couple of mins away from us and it is such a clear, warm day....however, I have to say that I am longing for the return of Autumn/Winter, as the nights draw in and we have even more excuses for curling up with a good book!! I am looking forward to summer by the sea but my heart always resides with the dark season :) Solstice Blessings Marie :)
