Plums

I love how the springtime brings in seasonal fruits such as plums, peaches, berries and melons.  I totally stocked up on all of these things yesterday while doing my grocery shopping at Hy-Vee.  The fruits probably aren’t at their peak ripeness right now, seeing as it is still March, but the two different plums I have eaten have both been delicious!

Whenever I eat plums I always thing about this William Carlos Williams poem.  During my Poetry reading class sophomore year, we did a unit on Williams’ poems and this was always one of my favorites.  It seems like a note a husband would leave his wife.

This Is Just to Say

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

 

That is all : )
