First MugPoem 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.
