A Little Note

A Little Note

I have taken the

earrings from on

your dresser.

They are probably

expensive and


But don’t worry,

I will try to be

careful with them.

—- Jennifer Anne Grieshaber

This is a poem I wrote in high school, as part of the capstone assignment my senior year. I emulated several of the poets that we studied, creating my own works. This was modeled after William Carlos Williams, This is Just to Say

This is Just to Say

I have eaten

the plums

that were in

the icebox

and which

you were probably


for breakfast

Forgive me

they were

so sweet

and so cold.

—- William Carlos Williams
