This is Just to Say

8 Apr

I have written
many poems
about you
on my blog

and which
you were probably
is not cool

Forgive me
they were fantasy
so sweet
and so irresistible.

NaPoWriMo Day 8! I am waay behind again this year, partially because I feel like I lost my muse. Anyway, today’s prompt was to rewrite a famous poem. I chose to rewrite one of my very favorite poems, by William Carlos Williams, which you can read below:

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

    I like how this poem uses the easily identifiable last two verses. Also, lovely poem overall. 🙂
