Today is World Poetry Day

It is.  You can look it up.

So, in honor of Word Poetry Day, here is a poem.  I don’t normally read much poetry, but I have always really liked this one:

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

William Carlos Williams
