The First Cup

The First Cup

A Poem by Fairytale

The morning sun arises through the trees,
The cold weather brings me to my knees.

A simple wind or air of snow,
The morning surly still must flow.

Ah that smell of pure delight,
my nose in tease, no substance in sight.

The smell robust and full of flair,
My love come to me...oh come to me, I swear.

Bringing me slowly to my feet,
My eyes open wider so our lips shall meet.

Out of bed I rise again,
The sun still rising breaking my zen.

Rising, rising, rising today,
The gift of sweet tastes like that of May.

The air is still cold but your heat draws me to,
The nectar of life is made into you.

I reach, I pour, I sip my sweet java,
You give me strength, you give me life, you give me warmth more than lava.

I sip slowly your sweet taste from a big, warm mug,
What to do without you, my mug I must hug.

I feel fresh and my senses are now alive,
The joy of that first cup heavenly jive.
To my next cup I keenly dive.

I am drinking coffee while I am reading the line "you give me warmth more than lava." lol...An ode to Java.....

There are quite a few people on this site that don't appreciate rhyming poetry, but it is much harder than it appears, and many of the masters did it and did it well. If it has rhythm it can be really good. I think you are very good at it.
