Coffee

Untitled

A post dinner coffee
Finer than dessert
The frothy milk
Feels like decadence
An end to a meal
With time to linger

A morning jolt
To start the day
I like mine dark
Corse and bitter
Fair trade
Rich taste

No hundred mile
Diet for me
My coffee needs to travel
Its aroma fills my kitchen
One of life's simple pleasures

for an ode to coffee, listen to Bach's Coffee Cantata
and here are the lyrics with English translation

  2. I like mine strong and black. But, I'm trying to drink less of it - I sleep better.
