This is Just to Say

Do you love poem?
 
Few years back as I was traveling through NYC Metro, a small billboard attracted me. It was made by Barnes & Noble for promoting poem books. The poem beneath was on the billboard. Yes, you have guessed it right, it was from William Carlos Williams! It is one of that memorable poem which I imagine began as a note typed to his wife, which turned into a poem. Was it a fair trade? — this poem for the plums she was saving?? What do you think?

Many people have endorsed this poem as one of those greatest romantic poems on earth. Seems so simple but enticing!

for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold
