Poetry Friday: This Is Just To Say by William Carlos Williams

December 1st, 2017 (06:00 am)
hungry

Current Mood: hungry
Current Song: Knock Knock by Twice

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 Is Just To Say by William Carlos Williams

just to say

This is one of my favorites! I love to use it as a mentor text, too.
