Oh you fair elixir of life!
Dark, sensuous vitality in a cup
How I love thee!
You make me to perk my up
Your steam enlivens the nostrils.
The eye beholds you – rare cocoa jewel,
Beefy-brown, and boisterous.
O Come, you Herald,
You King of my Day and
Bring me once again
The pulsing joy of all lertness
The warming tang of you
Caresses lips and toungue
Dispells the witchery of night
With your essence coursing,
I arise like a joyful warrior
Glad am I to feel you with me
Your liquid warmth a steadying hand
Sweeping away the golden slumbers
And shaking off the gloom of night.
