Childhood : Carelessness

This is just to say by William Carlos Williams

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.

Ik heb de pruimen opgegeten,
Die in de ijskast lagen
Die had je misschien wel
Voor het ontbijt bewaard
Vergeef me, ze waren heerlijk
Heel koud en lekker.

Toch lief, zo'n briefje s morgens.
