This Is Just To Say

Rating: 3.6
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

The appeal to the senses is amazing. The reader is left to savor, colour, taste and the fleeting delight of a few plums which are cold and must have been sweet, he having eaten more than one.

Smiling as I read this, I can feel your humility while bowing your head and grinning.

This is simple and without adorning stating just what happened and thought as wrong the person asked to b excused. Nothing much happening in the poem. The language is prose-like.
