    Really enjoy your poem. I'm a big coffee drinker and this is the first poem I've seen on the subject. Like the rhyming and the reference to all the different varieties. Every try cinnamon latte? It s a good one.

    Original poem, i like that you take cofee and write a poem on it and now i crave to take a sip. Lately, i'm not much into coffee, and if i feel like, i wanted it black with a touch of cinnamon. Thanks for sharing...)

    Hello Milly

    As Nightflyer points out, I haven't seen too many poems on this subject - but I have seen a few!
    This is excellent and I love your descriptions of each type throughout - a thorough going over of each.
    I have to say, though, I cannot possibly agree with your negative comparison to tea - it's tea fro me all day long I'm afraid, lol

    Take care

    I like this poem, not just because I'm a coffee drinker, it would have went well even with a taste of tea.

    Hello Milly,

    I love this poem. Why? well I love coffee, but also the way you describe the different varieties and the fact you used the term 'Rosy Lee' is super.

    I'm off to make a coffee now - probably just an instant at this time of the day - nearly bed time!

    Take care,

    My preference is for my own brew
    It's strong within my mug
    It's taken years to get it right
    The spoon stands it's thick as sludge.

    Without it I simply will not move!
    Because it brings me alive.
    But sometimes I make it so strong
    To the loo I have to dive.

    See it's not just a stimulant to mind,
    In this me, you must trust.
    If your tummy is a little sensitive
    It really moves yous guts.

    Of all the coffee shops out there
    There still ain't one I'd choose
    Mine is strong, the milks in first,
    they're always gonna lose.

    Sorry I was feeling silly.

    Love your poem

    Hey Milly! A shining example to me that poetry does not necessarily have to tackle or describe a profound idea or philosophy or emotion in life.

    It can reach many...if not more by being relatable and a common occurrence in life - and coffee vs tea is indeed just that! So not only is this poem your own personal thoughts on the topic ... But also to engage readers and compel them to comment and express their own views. If I was around at the time I just know I would have commented and picked a side!

    So stanza one sets the flow and structure of the piece. I get a peaceful vibe from the opening line and the rhyming structure is first two lines (in each stanza) rhymes and last two lines rhyme. It's in this stanza (wise choice I think) that you introduce the idea coffee is better than tea. Immediately engaging the reader.

    The descriptions of Latte's and cappacinos are perfect as I can make them myself. :-) milky and it!
    Expresso and hot choc descriptions ...'packs a punch' and 'sweet' are amazingly spot on.

    From there you write about brands of coffee...accepting that even tea drinkers are on board with your great write by now. The 'bitter' Americanos...Starbucks...Costa. All coffee drinkers are deciding their own preferences as they're reading.

    The flow and topic of the piece is calming and the rhyming perfect.

    The nasty side of me wishes to read a stanza that gives tea drinkers a bit of a kick, ;) but that's just me :D

    Enjoyed the read, hugs from me.

      Mark thank-you for your lovely detailed review of my poem. I was just beginning my poetry journey and wanted to write something different as you say to prove not all poetry has to be philosophical. I'm glad you liked it and you understood it perfectly. I think I'm Costa coffee biased lol. Thank you again for a very well thought out review. Milly x
