This Is Just To Say

By William Carlos Williams

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

I remember studying this poem in high school. My friend Brownnoser (obviously not her real name) and I made so much fun of it.

It's only now that I realise the beauty of it - he's not sorry at all!
