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 tree,

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.
