"This Is Just To Say" (1934)
by William Carlos Williams
I have eaten
that were in
you were probably
they were delicious
and so cold
Have you done this before (eaten the last of something)?!
Does it feel like a different poem when it's written like a note on the kitchen counter?
Do you like one version better than the other? Did you like listening to the poem?

Why do you think William Carlos Williams use sibilance in his poem? Do you think it's useful in this poem?
