Not Quite the Man for the Job. . . a couple of poems. I posted this way back in 2012.


As a follow up to my post about the book Not Quite the Man for the Job by Adam Ford, I have been contacted by the author and he has very kindly given permission for me to share a couple of the poems from his book.  I think you will see why my students enjoyed the poetry book so much.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with William Carlos Williams’ “This is just to say” . . . here it is.

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 delicious
so sweet
and so cold
