Crimson’s Creative Challenge #198 #The hidden perils of drinking tea

Miranda from Hull was a grocer’s daughter

who loved to stroll in the evening down by the water

where she would stand and look at the boats on the quay

and the crewmen would invite her on board to take tea

but she would smile sweetly and say sorry she couldn’t

for her sister Jo had done so when she shouldn’t

because although they could not have been kinder

her fatherless daughter was a constant reminder

  1. Working the boats. I’d been in town about 3 years before I realised what that meant 😊​😊​😊​
