A café stroll


Inside the coloured-full candy fun world

A scent in the minutes at play

A danciness share of deliciousness made

With fanciful antics all day.


The drip of the darkiest brew in the pot

The chocolaty swiff and cream swirl

A shake and a pour into porcelain drink

A step, jump, a splash and a twirl.


As fragranting flowers hang high up above

The custard and biscuits await

Where anyone’s everyone’s someone to greet

A chance for a moment or fate.


It all swings delightful, it’s carried away

A café stroll everywhere goes

A joy that’s contained as it brightens the way

A lightness that swishes and flows.
