Coffee, oh, coffee…

It has been a long time since this post was written but I consider it the best tribute to coffee, ever!

The ode to coffee starts thus:

O noble cup of velvet brew!
We thank each passing day for you,
If not for you our days would be
sad, and spent in drinking tea!

For the record, I have no violent objection to tea, just this feeling of it being completely insufficient in facing up to coffee as a beverage of choice, when it comes to knocking sleepiness out of me.


In keeping with the spirit of caffeine lovin’, here’s an informative page on 15 things about coffee.

    OMG, awesome verse! There is nothing better than coffee to wake up with. EVER.

    WTF, as if to taunt our love for coffee, WP’s automatically generated link below my post is about how ‘coffee calories can stretch your waistline’ =/

    And yes, thank heavens for coffee 😀

    Isn’t it wonderfully epiphanic (if that is a word…) how the best poetry always manages to say the exact thing you want to say, and in the words you’d have used, even though it was written years, maybe centuries earlier?

    Yes. Coffee. If it were not for it, I’d have to drink tea, and I wouldn’t be here then.

      Good poetry has the quality of remaining relevant long after the poet’s time… and resonating strongly with the feelings of so many.

      Tea, how worthless it must feel in the face of such odes to coffee 😀

    And rightly so.
