‘Proper’

The boiled water should be poured into a pot
From the kettle, an elaborately covered
Container that keeps it warm, from
Their to a cup which rests prettily
On its saucer, a lace mat beneath that.
Such a proper thing yet seldom done…perhaps
Being proper is not the way to do things.
Or perhaps it is. Is up to you.
