The Tea Party: A Poem by Jessica Nelson North

tea party

This popular poem is known as “The Tea Party” and was written by Jessica Nelson North in 1891.

I had a little tea party
this afternoon at three.
‘Twas very small,
three guests in all,
Just I, myself and me.

Myself ate up the sandwiches,
While I drank up the tea.
‘Twas also I who ate the pie,
And passed the cake to me.
