This is just to say



S.O.L. #31 out of 31
This is just to say

A copy cat poem  inspired by Meandering Maya  & W.C. Willaims

This is the note I should have received from my husband the other day.

This is just to say

I have opened
 the bag of Rolos
    and only eaten a few

but I bet you  planned 
  to take them to your
    students at school.

 Forgive me, my wife, 
     I thought they were a
    welcome home to me!


It's is so true. The forbidden seems to taste so much sweeter.  I don't know how many times I have made something and my husband feels disappointed when he finds out I am taking it to school.

I promise, my husband,
 I will make you 
 a warm  batch of cookies
that are not for my lunch bunch at school.

I will whip up that 
 special dip that
 is not for payday treats. 

and maybe even bake you a 
cake that is not for another colleague's
 birthday  ....

as soon as it is SUMMER!!

  3. I love these poems of false apology, they sound so sincere, but not really.

  6. Too funny! I'm hoping you know Joyce Sidman's book, THIS IS JUST TO SAY modeled after the William Carlos Williams' poems. My fourth graders LOVED that book!
