Plums

so sweet and so cold
and so messy, best eaten
just over the sink

plum, you're so juicy
i almost forgive you for
staining my white shirt

Caroline's bit reminds me of William Carlos Williams' "This is Just to Say."<br /><br />http://www.poets.org/poetsorg/poem/just-say

A classic! Who doesn't love that poem? My husband quoted it when we bought a big basket of plums, so for a joke I left him a note that read:<br />These are the plums<br />That are my danged breakfast<br />So eat them at your peril<br />You fool.<br /><br />Naturally, I expected a heap of pits: they were so cold, so sweet :)

Succulent, juicy plump & round your ready now to be plucked! Found!<br />Find me a pan where I can release my juice, add a topping & let me loose Please make it crunchy as I have what they call the plum fruit munchies!<br /><br />
