This is Just to Say - a Poetry Friday post

The other day I was re-reading A River of Words: The Story of William Carlos Williams by Jen Bryant, with its marvelous (and award-winning) illustrations by Melissa Sweet, and I remembered that there was one more "Matthew MacFadyen reading poetry" clip that I haven't yet posted: it's him performing William Carlos Williams's "This is Just to Say" as if he were actually writing the wry note in the first place (while t.A.T.u.'s "All the Things I Said" plays in the background).
