“Where Time Slows”

Times were diferent, times were slow
Relaxed and read under chandelier’s glow
Clotted cream churned for freshly-baked scones
Presented together atop marble stone
Before plaster and plastic was terrazzo and red brick
1890 first saw this mahogany Brunswick
Before e-books, e-friends and social media hubs
Were real books, real friends and local supper clubs

Remember when food was fresh, friends were cherished and community mattered more?
To host the club was a labor of love and service not a chore
Bellies laughed and eyes smiled as familiar faces arrived
Cheers to when guests were friends and supper clubs thrived
A place there still may be, where locals oft convene
A daily jubilee – jovial North State’s treat
Where all the days are holidays, not a care in mind
From tea time to chardonnays, it’s liberty defined

Hang the mink, prime the flume
Gather round the stove
Classic drinks and comfort foods
Uptown’s treasure trove
Contented clocks unwind at dial, no deadlines can impose
Come on in and stay a while…
Asterisk – Where time slows
