Samantha’s Ode to Coffee

It’s dark and cold outside; warm up with this short poem by yours truly. Here’s to the drink of champions.


ode to coffee


behold! the warmth of the cup that I grasp in my hands

the comfort it brings, as if an old friend

some like you plain and dark as can be

others prefer you with milk, sugar or cream


In the morning, a’brewin’, your aroma brings pleasure

awakens the senses, may make you feel better

an afternoon pick-me-up is often needed

and that you provide, in any season


You’re one of the best things to come from a bean

(although, sometimes, too much makes for a jittery fiend)

You take many forms; iced, frozen and hot

We heart you, coffee. We heart you, a lot.
