This is Just to Say

This is Just to Say
by William 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

My Poem
By Denise Krebs

This is Just to Say
I have given all
the students A’s
on their report card

Forgive me
I tried to
differentiate
and do
summative
assessments
but quarantining
has made them all
really good in English
they are so
clever and hardworking
