William Carlos Williams

July 20, 2010

In honor of plum season, one of my favorite poems by William Carlos Williams- penned in 1962.

This is Just to Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold.
