Apology Poetry
By Brenda B. Covert

1     How can I apologize? Let me count the ways.

1. I'm sorry.
2. I apologize.
3. I was wrong.
4. Please forgive me.
2     Another way to say I'm sorry is to write a poem about it. That's what William Carlos Williams did. He was a poet during the early and mid-1900's. His poem called "This Is Just to Say" sounds as if it might have been a note, from a man to his wife, stuck on a refrigerator door.

        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
3     A poem is an apology poem if it follows these three rules:

1. The writer confesses what he or she did.
2. The writer offers an apology.
3. The writer explains why it happened.
