An Elegy to Coffee

I loved it so during my youth

But I certainly have to tell the truth

It made my life happy for a while

Until the day I forgot to smile

Now I can not have it evermore

The aroma, the flavor, the taste galore

The cries and the moans do no good

I’d love to have it if only I could

But if I did, my belly would ache

So I have to renege, for my own sake.

Thought I’d try the elegiac couplets here.

Let me know what you think.

  1. What a perfect thing to elegize! I had to give up coffee a couple of times, temporarily and that was hard. Sooo, I can just imagine how tough it would be if it became verboten!


  2. Okay, I’ll tell you what I think. I think it is quite cute and excellent rhyme and beat (I said beat because I don’t know how to spell rhythm). Just joking! Excellent rhyme and rhythm.
