Homage to Queen Elizabeth II
Photo and Poem created and provided by Rebecca Haynie
Queen Elizabeth never missed an afternoon tea! And her reign was exceptional. One of our regular customers, Rebecca Haynie, was inspired to commemorate the late Queen with a poem as she hosts her own lavish tea lunches.
The Uncommon Woman of the Commonwealth
The brightness dulled a bit, somehow
Her life of faith and obligation,
Proved strength and grade and dedication.
Her deeds thrilled some, left others nonplussed.
But with her handling of a fractious horse,
She always delivered her best, of course.
We will not see her like again.
She would say she returns to God.
She would not care whether we applaud.
