Charlotte's Tea - Monday's Child #34

Illustration by Jessie Wilcox Smith - 1914

Charlotte's Tea

It was a beautiful, sunny, summer's day,
When Charlotte and her Monkey, went out to play.

Charlotte laid a table with cloth and tea cups,
When suddenly her Monkey, got the hiccups!

'That's allright, Monkey', said Charlotte, 'Drink your tea.'
'Thank you', said the Monkey, 'You're so good to me.'


This is my first post for Monday's Child.
Best wishes,

Hej Anna!

It's nice to encounter a fellow Swede.

What a wonderful tale! We all know you can't control the hiccups.

Take care.
