Comparing Poems

1. This Is Just To Say by William Carlos Williams

2. Variations On A Theme By William Carlos Williams written by Kenneth Koch

3. And finally, To My Husband written by Ali the Lazy Dog:

I have thrown away
the papers
cluttering up
the desk
and which
you were probably
for.....who knows
Forgive me
I go on a cleaning spree
when I'm sad
and angry

Which one do you like the best? Don't answer that. That was a rhetorical question. Unless you like number 3. Otherwise, nevermind.

Stumble Upon Toolbar


  1. I bet he would have never known if you hadn't mentioned it. I have had a decorative jar of peppers on the baker's rack for 5 years, I move it forward 4 inches and Frank asked if it was new. That's actually a funny story, but, seriously, they just don't know.

  2. Haha, I just found your blog while looking for chocolate chip peanut butter cookies actually... by the way the ones you posted are great!

    Anyway, I love the poem "To My Husband" it reminded me of myself, as I clean when I'm mad and sad too! It must be a woman thing. :)
