If you're not normally a fan of poetry then maybe this new initiative will get you more excited about it. 

It's World Poetry Day and several Dublin cafes are allowing customers to 'Pay With A Poem' to mark the occasion. In order to get a free dose of caffeine all you have to do is get in touch with your creative side and either write or say a poem to staff.

The initiative was put together by Lovin Dublin in association with the poet Kerrie O'Brien.

Full marks to Kaph on Drury Street who are also giving away the chance to take home a free bag of coffee if you're brave enough to read your creation aloud. 

Here's the full list of cafes taking part in the initiative: 

Viva, Portobello
BB’s Coffee and Co, Hanover Quay
Clement and Pekoe, South William Street
Il Posto, St Stephen’s Green
Two Pups Coffee, Francis Street
Nick’s Coffee Co, Ranelagh (10am-close)
Books Upstairs, D’Olier Street (5-7pm)
Sasha House Petite, Drury Street (2pm-7pm)
Kaph, Drury Street (12-1pm – also, read your poem aloud for the chance to win a bag of coffee to take home).
