This is Just to Say

This Is Just to Say
-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




I always loved this one. I like to think that the speaker died before the note was read.
