O Coffee, My Coffee! ICLW day #5
June 25, 2010 § 3 Comments
So, it is date night….we are going out for Mexican food tonight. Mom is coming over to watch the Twinkies. It has been a while since we had a date night, so I am kind of looking forward to this one. Some times, I think we all need to just separate Mommy and Daddy from the kids, so that Mommy and Daddy don’t get lost. What do you do to make sure that you and yours stay connected? I am always looking for ideas…..
And just because I am such a huge coffee buff….A very good friend of mine in the Great White North wrote this adaptation of Walt Whitman‘s O Captain! My Captain! For me this morning as an ode to that dark beverage that I so love. Not really what I was planning on writing about on Day 5 of ICLW…but what the hay!
O coffee my coffee! your grateful drip is done,
The pot has weathered every drop, the prize we sought is won,
The mug is near, the water was clear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady pour, the kettle grim and daring;
But O heart! heart! heart!
O the bleeding drops of brown,
Where on the counter my head lies,
Fallen sleepy and worn down.
