Season’s Greetings 2017

In the spirit and tradition of favorite poet William Carlos Williams, this is just to say:

I have enjoyed
the assignments
that were in
my inbox

and which
you were probably
sending
for betterment

Forgive me
they were demanding
so discreet
and so manifold

(For comparison, here is the original This is Just to Say from 1934:)

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

Have your say
