O tea, O moistened herb! Mug-harbored, Spouse-delivered Steaming under the canopy of a spare shirt. O essence, Inhaled (so that’s what breathing is… now I remember) Consumed (so that’s what swallowing is… now I remember),  Now you are gone, But your goodness endures.

O tea,
O moistened herb!

Mug-harbored,
Spouse-delivered
Steaming under the canopy of a spare shirt.

O essence,
Inhaled (so that’s what breathing is… now I remember)
Consumed (so that’s what swallowing is… now I remember),
Now you are gone,
But your goodness endures.
