Coffee! - Poem by Ernestine Northover

Coffee beans all ground up,
Coffee in my favourite cup,
Coffee black, coffee white,
Coffee dark, coffee light,
Coffee right, to start the day,
Coffee at work, coffee at play,
Coffee midday, coffee at night,
Coffee to sober, coffee to excite,
Coffee weak, coffee strong,
But maybe instead some Lapsang Souchong! ! ! !
TEA! ! ! ! !

    Well that picked me up - I like tea too especially now that regular coffee is off limits.

    A deliciously aromatic poem, Ernestine. You took up the challenge, too. Wish I'd known about it earlier. Mine's a strong, black one by the way.....

    Love, Fran xx
