Finish-Line Inspiration

Tomorrow is the last day of the Ode to Fruit Poetry Contest. We’ll be judging the contest on Monday and announcing the winner thereafter. But there’s still plenty of time to submit a poem! The William Carlos Williams poem below was sent to us from Dave Kapell, creator of Magnetic Poetry and one of our guest judges. It’s a great poem to inspire your creativity, even though FruitShare is not shipping plums quite yet (but summer is right around the corner, and plums will surely be here soon!).

This Is Just To Say 

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
