For the Love of Coffee – A Poem by Sylvia Syms

For the Love of Coffee

For the Love of Coffee

The smell of coffee will rouse you before you kiss the cup.
It caresses you and teases you, compels you to get up.

This magical elixir beckons you to imbibe.
Epicurious coffee lovers belong to a special tribe.

We meet in crowded places,we tolerate long lines.
All of this, just to procure one cuppa Joe Divine.

Liquid joy paired with donuts or a sweet little piece of cake, the aroma
of hazelnut creamer is more than I can take.

I love you Arabica and Sumatra, you’ll be my friends for life.
We can meet each day, enjoy our time relaxed and free from strife.
