A Tiny Tea-Party

Mexie and Bridie
by Gwendolyn Brooks

A tiny tea-party
Is happening today.
Pink cakes, and nuts and bon-bons on
A tiny, shiny tray.
It’s out within the weather,
Beneath the clouds and sun.
And pausing ants have peeked upon,
As birds and God have done.
Mexie’s in her white dress,
and Bridie’s in her brown.
There are no finer Ladies
Tea-ing in the town.
