Lemon Tea

I think I wrote this on the Snowman Trek – it was at the top of a mountain pass somewhere

Lemon Tea

There is little oxygen up here
at five thousand metres,
just desiccated air,
but there is Lemon Tea
that pierces placid tongues.

I could reach out and touch Tibet,
sat here in glorious exhaustion;
just scoop snow from distant peaks,
but only after Lemon Tea,
so sharp, so slick, so sweet.

About George Fripley
I am a writer who enjoys writing humour, satire, poetry and sometimes a bit of philosophy. I live in Perth, Western Australia and occasionally get a poem or article published. It's all good fun! I have two books available for unwary readers, Grudges, Rumours and Drama Queens- The Civil Servant's Manual (This contains all that anybody could ever want to know about why government runs so slowly) and More Gravy Please! - the Politician's Handbook. (available through Amazon). Real name Peter Tapsell...just started off writing under a pseudonym and kept going.
