Aunties Tea Shop Cambridge

Aunties Tea Shop

Ensconced between the lace,
The doilies and cake plates,
I spy a modern world passing.

Students of Law of Physics and
Of a world of adventure and more,
Glide elegantly over cobbled streets.

Tourists of every colour
Litter these ancient lanes,
Snapping, chatting even gawking at history.

And safely snuggled here,
Me with tea and scones,
Purveying a world that groans.
