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

William Carlos Williams

A favourite poem from highschool days that comes immediately to mind when a cold plum presses against my lips.

Summer plums from Sapo Bravo Farm in Lytton, BC.
