This Is Just To Say

I have eaten
the plums
that were in
the icebox

and which
you had probably
for lockdown

Forgive me
they were delicious
so sweet
and so cold

A young couple, in their solitude,
With a cupboard and fridge full of food,
Found self-isolation
A tiring vacation,
Alone, under-occupied, rude

This poem always makes me shiver with joy.

[in Just-]


in Just-
spring when the world is mud-
luscious the little
lame balloonman

whistles far and wee

and eddieandbill come
running from marbles and
piracies and it's

when the world is puddle-wonderful

the queer
old balloonman whistles
far and wee
and bettyandisbel come dancing

from hop-scotch and jump-rope and




balloonMan whistles
