by Edwin Morgan
When asked if he'd like to think of a poem
for a mug, Edwin Morgan accepted the challenge right away.
The result is Art-for-Everyday-Life: You can drink your morning
coffee and start your day with poetry. - A perfect combination
for a really good start!
The MugPoem is available at the Scottish Poetry
Library (SPL) in Edinburgh. For details check News.
Sip delicately as a snake in the midday sun,
Slurp hugely as a hippopotamus after a lumbering run.
Snort like a sow at the wallow.
Swallow as sweetly as a swallow.
Drain me deep
let freshness sweep
throughout your veins
to slake you, make you
laugh and leap
to old refrains.
