In the forest of an Ethiopian plateau,
the goat herder, Kaldi, first discovered
the potential of these beloved beans,
a sealed envelope
from the king of the universe’s mother.

After eating the berries from a Robusta
his goats began breathing quicker
in the evening.
They even ran wild near the shore of the
sapphire sea,
jumping, trailing, troubling.

The huge discovery of the energizing
berries spread.
It kept the abbot alert through the long
hours of evening prayer.
Just as fast as a spider weaves the nets
of threads,
everyone used this little bean to explore.

As the envelope moved and reached
eastern parts,
the letter opened with hope and love
and art.
