CUPPA
You draw me in with your fragrant charm
A cuppa in the morning to follow the alarm
Heaped granules or finely spooned
Dark and bitter but sometimes lait festooned
Ritual recurring from berry to enriching balm

  2. The first morning cup is the best, isn't it? The most pleasant way to survive the alarm.
