Pilar

By acula

This is just to say

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


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.
