Poetry Friday - This Is Just To Say

I recently read Sharon Creech's recently published Hate That Cat which is just as adorable as her book called Love That Dog. You can see a review of it from January. Anyway, Jack writes poems in both books inspired by this William Carlos Williams poem that I have always loved.

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.

-- William Carlos Williams
