This is Just To Say

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

William Carlos Williams

Plum tart from 2009.

    Love the poem, and love the idea of baking a plum tart to accompany it. I actually just did this on my site, Glad to know that there are like minds out there!
