This is just to say
I have eaten
the chocolate cake
that was on
the kitchen table

and which
you were probably saving
for the party

Forgive me
it was delicious
so dark
and so filling


What we learned today:

This Is Just To Say” (1934) is a famous imagist poem by William Carlos Williams.

Williams was apparently a well-respected GP (family doctor) before becoming a writer and was friend of artists such as Man Ray and Marcel Duchamp – his work was later quoted as an inspiration for Allen Ginsberg and other poets and writers of the Beat Generation. Interesting stuff!


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

Christmas is a time when kids tell Santa what they want and adults pay for it. Deficits are when adults tell the government what they want and their kids pay for it. Richard Lamm
