This is just to say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
saving
for next Monday's breakfast

Don't worry
they were wrinkly,
and one had a bit of mould
on it.

after the William Carlos Williams poem

Think we have been in the same place many times!
Note that the collection of poems was edited by Christopher MacGowan - any elationship?

I hope we are going to get more than mouldy plums when we come to visit!!
