It's The Queen of Hearts,
A very big part of this story.
I should have known that she would be first on the scene.
but now she is followed by someone who's mean.
The next to arrive through the looking glass is.....
her terrible two faced cousin,
Mean Miss Liz
a.k.a. the Knave or thief of hearts.
Hey, here comes the countess, the countess of hearts
Don't worry she's nice, but not from these parts.
My first guests are here!
But now I see a new face is near.
Yes, I see some movement in the tiny looking glass of the friendly fairy's home.
A friendly face is what I see. ......
the face of a tiny green gnome.
I welcome that cute, petite man. What the hey!
Come on through, I say!
Come on on through for the day!
He comes through the looking glass with patience and care.
Then points with his finger and shouts,
"What a strange pair!!! "
I look to the left
Haven't seen the likes of this since last I drank rum
Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum
I welcome you all to this mighty fine party!
So, let's go get started the others are tardy.
Make yourselves right at home.
now, let's be off to the parlor for tea and some fun.
if you please
to a tea party prepared for you
They took such great care and delight
in getting things ready for three days and one night.
I look all around and in every detail
a bird or bee will be found without fail.
A cute pair of Robins sing a song just for me.
A giant Queen helps with the serving of tea,
while the other bees sit, smiling happily.
Well, I think
yes, I think
that it's time for a drink!
I would like to stir some honey into my tea
but as I reach for the spoon,
it looks like the queen bee is coming after me
Have no fear, she just wants to try on my ring my dear.
Would like to wear my ring some day?
No, no not today,
I'm a busy bee
busy making lots of tea.
Is what she says to me.
This honey bee tea tastes so sweet and Divine
somehow, I just don't feel quite right or just fine.
I really feel odd and not like myself.
My head is a flutter and my poor brain feels fatter
Is it all because of the this crazy Mad Hatter?
and be sure to
Says to just play the games and give them a try.
They will not make me cry
and the way I look
she tells me,
won't last very long
I tell a white lie.
Who's up for some fun?
Let's have a game of cards, says the Hatter and the Queen plays along.
She wants to play hearts
and the game of hearts is what she will play.
This is the game
the game of the day.
Of course , as we play
she's the best!
She's so much better than all of the guests.
After this game more friends just show up.
Here comes one looking for a venetian tea cup.
The lovely Miss Mary Poppins floats in on balloons and as she arrives another guest swoons.
And who could miss this curious bunch.
They are the guests from venice.
They bring their handmade cups of tea
and their fabulous masks from the ports near their sea.
Across the oceans these guests did arrive
through the looking glass
The Italian clown and his Carnivale players
It's a game played with food and it's really quite good.
You eat the spaghetti much faster than you normally would.
She plays along and looks the same.
She eats her spaghetti faster than flies.
Of course she wins and it's no surprise.
But how can she win?
She hardly tries.
Oh, no matter even if I don't win,
I do feel much like my old self again.
This day has been odd
this day makes me wonder
if I should be going
and that's what I ponder.
Before I can answer my question within
through the looking glass I see the March Hare popping in
and says with a grin
"Now that I'm here Let the chess games begin!"
So off to the game room all in all,
to play these fine games that we fondly recall.
I wonder what's in it
Do I dare ask?
I'll question the players who put on their masks.
I ask them and ask them and put them to task
"Drink that drink upon the table!"
I think I will drink it and then throw the dice
After my sip I speak to the gnome who asks me a question right out of the tome.
The little gnome asks me if Iam keen
to play a chess match against the masquerade queen.
My thoughts they are muddy
This all makes me wonder
They played a good game and the Mad Hatter exclaims,
so thrilled is the Queen with her lovely heart box,
He says these here words then tells me a riddle
he tells me a secret but one that is little.
Your prize it awaits you
it's that precious rose,
that beautiful rose where a miracle grows.
I speak the truth so often in riddles
now go find out why a mini rose giggles.
I'm off to the white cage to claim my great prize.
I lift up my rose and the giggles get louder
Well, under the stem of my rose here I find
These babies look frightened but they will be fine
I won this here game of croquet. Do you see?
Please leave a comment here today. These first little babies I must give away!
oh look here's the Mother, she's saying goodbye. Don't look there too closely, I think she could cry.
She says take good care of my babies, oh please!
I'm off now. I must quickly go back to the Seas.
It's The End of the Mad tea party story but more babies will soon be arriving at my new Etsy shop along with lots of other goodies.
