This is just to say...

I LOVE this poem! by William Carlos Williams

This Is Just to Say
by William Carlos Williams

I have eaten the plums
that were in the ice box
and which you were probably saving for breakfast
Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold


  1. If that's poetry, I'll try to get my next grocery list published, LOL!

  2. This poem was written in the 1920's and at that time, it wasn't really a poem, but then it was classified as a poem, because...there is rhythm!
