A poem written by me and inspired by a poem by William Carlos Williams

This is just to say
I have picked too many dandelions
that went bad right away.
You probably would have liked it better if I had left them in the ground.
Forgive me.
They were so yellow
and there were so many.

William Carlos Williams originally wrote a letter to his wife in poetry form, that inspired this poem and many others.

This is just to say
by Williams Carlos Williams
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
