WOW. I love antiques, and those look old. And the pattern on them is exquisite! I love them! 😍 I especially like the chicken!

Antique teapot, tell me,
What all have you seen?
The turn of a century,
Or just your rising steam?

Old vase, please enlighten;
What have you witnessed?
Many kinds of flora stuffed in,
And near death by a cat’s kiss?

Ancient cup, what stories
Have you to share?
Lemonades, teas, coffees –
How many drank from there?

Archaic plate, what all
Have you observed?
Fish, chicken, salad,
On you being served?

If only you could tell!
Over the many years,
What have you seen? “Well…
To summarize: laughter and tears,

Contentment and hard times,
Sometimes we were sold,
And gifted, or victims of crime.
There are many things to be told –

But we have passed 100 words.”
