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

A poem by    William Carlos Williams

Yesterday when I went to see my friend Manoli, she gave me a lot of plums from her beautiful tree.
Today I had a handful of them for my 'merienda'. I just couldn't resist to share this little poem with you.
