A Favorite Poem

Jason Reynolds’ blog made me aware that today is World Poetry Day. So, I decided why not record a reading of one of my favorite poems in the world today. So, here it is:

This Is Just To Say
BY 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
