Write me a note

This is Just To Say (by Williams Carlos Williams)

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you were probably
for breakfast

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

(apparently this was in a note written by the poet in a piece of paper and left in the refrigerator for his wife to see)
