This Is Just To Say
by William Carlos Williams

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


Copyright © 1962 by William Carlos Williams.

This was the first poem ever given to me by a friend and its become the Official
Poem of my friendship with this person. Its also the perfect love poem, don't you think? And
it was the first poem suggested for inclusion on this poetry blog by one of our dear readers.
So in it goes. Keep those suggestions coming, kids!
