An Ode to Coffee

O, energizing humble, dark bean
Thou art the kitchen queen
Roasted and ground of every feature
The sole aromatic creature
For which we pine and feel,
For which we would even kneel. ???????????

Savoring the silky creaminess at seven
Every sip opens a doorway to heaven
Comforting me as I curse and yawn
Hurrying to work early in the morn
Oh thy warmth and lively kick!
Art thou a mystical magic trick?

Thou art known by many a name
To pronounce it people struggle in vain
But for a single sip, many would travel far
A god, A savior, thou definitely are.
So here’s a health to coffee hot!
A morning toast with a fresh pot!
