Dark and beautiful dost thou appear to me
Oh tempter of my soul.
Thy tender warmth and surface smooth
Lure me under thy control.
With sweet aromas thou dost beckon me
From my cocoon each morn;
To live without thy comforting presence
Would be a loss too great to mourn
Thou art the only reason I live each day;
I am energized by thy affects.
And with they helping hand thou dost keep
Me from saying things I would regret.
I could never describe thy perfection,
For it art higher than Heaven.
The greatest earthly joy could never compare,
Even if multiplied by seven.
Oh how intensely do I cherish thee,
Dear sweet and magnanimous coffee.
