This Is Just To Say
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold.
— William Carlos Williams
Thought of this poem this morning: it was blueberries I was tucking into, but they reminded me of the lines about delicious, sweet and cold.
I’d just popped into Moore Wilson, mostly to stand next to their wonderful freezers. Bloody hell its hot.
The poem was one of the first we did in Modern Literature at Uni.
It’s a good poem to throw at Uni students. A lot us have had flatmates like Old Bill Carlos, pinching our stuff from the fridge.
