Excerpt: 

The love of coffee
O coffee!
Loved and fragrant drink, you drive care away,
You are the object of that man’s wish who studies night and day
You soothe him, you give him health and god does favour those
Who walk straight on its wisdom way, nor seek their own repose,
Fragrant as musk your berry is, yet black as ink in sooth!
And he who sips your fragrant cup can only know the truth
Insensate they who, tasting not, yet vilify its use,
For when they thirst and seek its help, God will the gift refuse
Oh, Coffee is our wealth! For see, whereever on earth it grows,
Men live who aims are noble, true virtues who disclose.
