The British influence still lingers at the Olive Tree Markets!
Gone are the days of summer and sipping lemonade;
Gone are the days of sun-tan cream and sheltering in the shade.
There's a touch of chill in the breezes that blow in from the sea.
What better time to warm our toes and have a cup of tea?
'Put the jug on, Mary!' that's the evening cry!
And here are some tea-cosies for everyone to buy.
Of every form and colour they're spread out on the stall;
Brilliant, bright and colourful! I'd like to buy them all!
A tea-bag is convenient; it really hits the spot,
But for a good old-fashioned drink there's nothing like a pot.
And a pot needs a little jacket in view of the second cup.
Let's cling to the British tradition!
And drink up!
