Poetry – Time to Drink Coffee by Lynda Gray

This poem is for lovers of coffee.  The best cappuccino I have ever drunk was in Scala, Italy ten years ago.  I have tried a lot of coffee over the years – but this molto eccellente (very excellent) experience stays with me.


Do they have time to drink coffee?

Who has time to drink coffee?

Does the doctor have time?

Does the lawyer have time?

Does the teacher have time?

Does the artist have time?


Does the writer have time?

The writer has lots of time.

The writer drinks coffee.

The writer sits at the coffee shop.

The writer writes and drinks coffee

in Ascot, where you find many people

who have time to drink coffee.
