This is just to say

This is one of my favourite poems by William Carlos Williams. It’s a bowl of plums: cold, sweet, delicious, simple.

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

Thanks to Poets.org – Poetry, Poems, Bios & More for this.

  1. That’s fantastic. Simple poetry, in my humble opinion, is the most artistic of its kind and most likely to elicit a wide range of reader responses. I too enjoy writing food poetry ^.^
