French Coffee Poetry

.

Bright plants, the favorites of Phoebus,
In these climes the rarest virtues offer,
Delicious Mocha, thy sap, enchantress,
Awakens genius, out values Parnasse!

René-Richard Louis Castel (1758 – 1832), French naturist and poet.

 

Parnasse (Parnassianism) was a French literary movement among poets in the 19th century, named after the poets’ journal Le Parnasse contemporain.
