This Is Just To Say

I first read this poem in a rather odd place – on a card in the accounting office of a place I once worked. The words always stuck with me, but I didn’t know it was a poem until I randomly thought of it and googled it one day. I can’t really explain why I love it so much, but I just like how it reads like a note left on a kitchen counter. Enjoy!

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

-William Carlos Williams
