Teapot and Teacup poems - a perfect collection for baby showers, wedding showers and fun events.

Awhile back I wrote a post full of suggestions on how to add a creative touch to the teapot, a very common wedding gift.ย  At the bottom, I suggested you look up a poem to include from Google.ย  Here I am, pulling together a few to make your life easier!ย  Ahem, as it turns out, there are a lot of depressing and not appropriate poems about teapots!ย  I have attempted to parse the list a bit for you here:

From Paper Crafts for Children, a poem and a cute card idea you could make:

A cup of tea to say thank you
For all the things youโ€™ve done
And wishes that the day will bring
You happiness and fun.

The Teapot and the Kettle from United World Poets

The teapot said to the kettle
Ooh how I wish I was you now
you haven’t won any meddles
for class but you’re better somehow

You boil water for anything
My life’s about holding some tea
I find it’s no longer fulfilling
and I think that something is wrong with me

I used to love serving my tea
Learned how to sit most elegantly
In the cupboard, I worked on my pose
Now I slouch, albeit carefully

I think I might be a closet kettle
Don’t know how to come out to my owner
You see I don’t have the mettle,
It wasn’t built in me back in China

I can’t believe it! said Bettie the Kettle
All of this time I’ve been jealous of you!
Your class, your part time work you looked settled
So let’s speak to her see, I want a swap too!!

A Cup of Tea from Taste Arts

When the world is all at odds
And the mind is all at sea
Then cease the useless tedium
And brew a cup of tea.
There is magic in its fragrance,
There is solace in its taste;
And the laden moments vanish
Somehow into space.
The world becomes a lovely thing!
Thereโ€™s beauty as youโ€™ll see;
All because you briefly stopped
To brew a cup of tea.

Tea Talk from Taste Arts

โ€˜Excuse me if I sit on you,โ€™ the cup said to the saucer.
โ€™I fear Iโ€™ve been here all the afternoon.โ€™
โ€˜Spare excuses,โ€™ said the saucer; โ€˜you have sat on me before, sir.โ€™
โ€™Oh, Iโ€™ll stir him up directly,โ€™ said the spoon.
โ€˜Stop your clatter! Stop your clatter!โ€™ cried the bread-and-butter platter
โ€™Tittle-tattle!โ€™ sneered the tea-pot, with a shrug;
โ€˜Now, the most important question is my chronic indigestion.โ€™
โ€™Ah, youโ€™ve taken too much tannin,โ€™ jeered the jug.
โ€˜Hey, hey, hey!โ€™ sang the silver-plated tray,
โ€˜Itโ€™s time you had your faces washed. Iโ€™ve come to clear away!โ€™

Untitled Tea Poems from Tea Party Guide

Tea that helps our head and heart.
Tea medicates most every part.
Tea rejuvenates the very old.
Tea warms the hands of those who’re cold.
~J. Jonker, Amsterdam, circa 1670

Steam rises from a cup of tea
and we are wrapped in history,
inhaling ancient times and lands,
comfort of ages in our hands.
~Faith Greenbowl

 

The cozy fire is bright and gay,
The merry kettle boils away
and hums a cheerful song.
I sing the saucer and the cup;
Pray, Mary, fill the teapot up,
And do not make it strong
~Barry Pain

Afternoon Tea from Tea Party Guide

My copper kettle
whistles merrily
and signals that
it is time for tea.
The fine china cups
are filled with the brew.
There’s lemon and sugar
and sweet cream, too.
But, best of all
there’s friendship, between you and me.
As we lovingly share
our afternoon tea.
– Marianna Arolin

Drinkin’ from my Saucer from Tea Party Guide

I’ve never made a fortune
And it’s prob’ly too late now;
But I don’t worry ’bout that much,
I’m happy anyhow!

And as I go along life’s way
Reapin’ better than I sowed.
I’m drinkin’ from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed!

Haven’t got a lot of riches,
And sometimes the going’s tough;
But I’ve got loving ones around me,
And that makes me rich enough!

I thank God for His blessings
And the mercies He’s bestowed.
I’m drinkin’ from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed!

I ‘member times when things went wrong,
My faith wore somewhat thin;
But all at once the dark clouds broke
And light peeped through again.

So, Lord, help me not to gripe
About tough rows I’ve hoed.
I’m drinkin’ from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed!

If God gives me strength and courage
When the way grows steep and rough,
I’ll not ask for other blessings;
I’m already blessed enough!

May I never be too busy
To help others bear their loads.
I’ll keep drinkin’ from my saucer,
‘Cause my cup has overflowed!
–ย  Jimmy Dean ยฉ
