MORE POETRY I LOVE NOW


COFFEE BOWL WITH PLUMS
(By N. Michelle Tully)
**********
"THIS IS JUST TO SAY"
(by William Carlos Williams)
*****
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.
