W is for Williams

Turning away from the weighty tomes today's poem comes from 'Short and Sweet: 101 very short poems' edited by Simon Armitage, and is by the American poet William Carlos Williams. I love particularly poems which capture something very tiny about life, and express it exquisitely.

This is Just to Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
