Tea

Tea would go into hiding behind bushes
Waking in afternoons of female hands
Deft for plucking, tongues busy crying.
Three leaves and bud go back, to baskets
Like dreams plucked one by one in sleep
For tea- taste by expert tongue of finger.
Only the best would pass the test leaving
The unselected crying to afternoon sleep.
