William Carlos Williams

via “This is just to say”

William Carlos Williams left a note of apology for savoring the forbidden fruit meant to be served with breakfast. Here are my comments on his words:

William Carlos Williams apologizes

He says he regrets he ate the plums

He knows they were meant to be served for breakfast

Is he really sorry that he enjoyed his fruit?

His apology seems more than a little insincere– I think

He enjoyed his late night snack, savored its deep flavor,

He recalls the taste of his forbidden fruit with pleasure

For an opinionated woman such as I, blogging is an excellent outlet. This is one of many fori that I use to bloviate. Enjoy! Comment on my commentary.
