“so sweet / and so cold”

I know it will seem like cheating, since this poem is so short, but I’ve always wanted to really know William Carlos Williams’s “This is Just To Say” — and I’ve never made it past the first two lines. I’m hoping to learn it well enough that all my notes, in future, will have the same apologetic, wistful clarity.
