Three seasons of young love

Trying to find a poem I once read, can only remember this: We sat inside, we drank our tea. In sips, he had enough of me.

I remember reading a poem that was divided into three parts (maaaybe four), each a season in a relationship - starting with limerence, then the mature relationship, then the decline. The one I remember is the shortest, and I believe it goes:

We sat inside
We drank our tea
In sips, he had
Enough of me

Does this ring any bells? I haven't had any luck searching for this stanza, but I'm sure it exists!

Total guess, but given the format, subject matter, and mention of tea, could it be by Wendy Cope?
