This is Just to Say

Standard

 

 

This is Just to Say (apologies to William Carlos Williams)

 

This is Just to Say

I have  not graded

the papers

that are waiting on

the table

 

and which

parents are waiting

to see in the gradebook

 

Forgive me

a blog of shortness

overburdened

with grades due

 

The original 

This is Just to Say
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
