To a Poor Old Woman
by William Carlos Williams
munching a plum on 
the street a paper bag
of them in her hand

They taste good to her
They taste good 
to her. They taste
good to her

You can see it by
the way she gives herself
to the one half
sucked out in her hand

a solace of ripe plums
seeming to fill the air
They taste good to her



Think of something you shouldn't do, then write a note to explain. Be poetic.



This is just to say
I have read
the diaries
that were in
the trunk

and which
you were probably saving
for your grandchildren

forgive me
they were tempting
so inviting
and so readable
