La Nourriture

Together sitting taking tea
Discussing nothing much at all
Background noises merging
Like interludes at Albert Hall

Voices trailing night ships sailing
To places who knows where
All around a union sound
Filled with people unaware

The cafĂ© loud with lively crowd
Scraping seats and cutlery
Coming going toing  froing
Hall of smart-set imagery

Waitrons bringing orders winging
Sweet or savoury desires
Table numbers no one slumbers
Is all that pleasantry requires
