to say...

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

...
this might be my favorite William Carlos Williams poem...maybe because my introduction to said poem was when my husband sent it to me...back when he was in college and was an on again-off again boyfriend. A long story for another day.
