Poetry prompt - This Is Just To Say

This Is Just To Say

William Carlos Williams, 1883-1963

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.

Mary told us how she uses this poem when working with Transition year students, helping them to write poetry.
