William Carlos Williams (1883-1963) reads his poem 'This Is Just To Say' in Rutherford, NJ, August 1950.

Poem originally from WCW's highly influential poetry collection 'Spring and All' (1923).

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
