This poem has been showing up all over the place for me in the past couple of weeks, and I am finding myself growing incredibly found of it.

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

NPR did a special show recently all about this poem and a contest that was had for people to make their own versions of it...it was quite funny. The show was all about people apologizing for things they don't really feel sorry for.

...and also, SPACED is too much fun for proper words...
