I enjoyed going through books these last few days, munching and savoring poems.
Here's a beauty by William Carlos Williams.

To a Poor Old Woman 

munching a plum on
the street a paper bag
of them in her hand

They taste good to her
They taste good
to her.  They taste
good to her.  

You can see it by 
the way she gives herself
to the one half
sucked out in her hand

a solace of ripe plums
seeming to fill the air
They taste good to her

  - William Carlos Williams.
