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

    After I initially left a comment I appear to have clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now whenever a comment is added I get four
    emails with the same comment. There has to be a way you are able to remove me from that service?
    Thank you!

    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views.
