Tea with Miss. Marple

Oh do please come in,
It’s so kind of you to call.
You see I have this poem,
And I’m not sure what to write at all.
Can I offer you some tea?
Or tempt you with something sweet.
Oh forgive me gushing slightly,
But I’ve been a fan so long.
To have one’s idol come for tea,
Well it really is quite fun.
I’ve read of all your deeds and mysteries.
That nice Mrs. Christie wrote.
I’ve seen so many versions of you
On screens both small and large.
Joan Hickson will always be for me,
The one who got your character perfectly.
Now while you sip your tea.
Please tell me do,
Tales of murder and foul deeds
And how you solve all these.
With that gentle twinkle in your eye.
Yet your resolve of steel.

Inspired by Magaly Guerrero and her prompts for Aprils NaPoWriMo 2015

You Might Not Know Me But.....
 Address this poem to a fictional character or a historical figure.


  1. I love that the speaker doesn't allow her idol to put in a word... that's exactly how it would go in my house. Wonderfully done!

  2. I'm with Magaly. When I got to meet one of my idols, Henry Rollins, I was so...astonished I couldn't react properly until I got the fangirl out of the way.

  3. I'd chatter the ears of my idols right off as well! What a lovely exuberance to this!

  4. This was a sweet little memento. Very nice work.
