April 19 : This Is Just To Say by William Carlos Williams

Everyone loves William Carlos Williams. My favorite of his is "The Red Wheelbarrow" but this piece is definitely up there. It's a lover's note in a sense, don't you think?

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
