She, such a very ordinary little woman;

`He, such a thumping crook:

But both, for a moment, little lower than the angels

In the teashop's ingle-nook.

Reading " The,Tea Shop " reminded me of one of my favourite lines from '
Betjeman
Upper Lambourne -
" Shift the shade towards the nettles
And the nettles set it free
To streak the stained carrara headstone
Where in ninteen twenty three
He who trained a hundred winners
Paid the final entrance fee "
