This Is Just To Say

Tomorrow after their test on Lewis Carroll, my students will be reading three poems by William Carlos Williams: "This Is Just To Say", "The Locust Tree in Flower", and "Between Walls". I usually write poems with the kids, so tonight I am going to share with you my poem modeled after "This Is Just To Say".

Dear Husband
I told you
I had no papers
to grade
but if
you saw my desk
you just might
find watercolor paintings
of haiku
Forgive me
for being
addicted to
