I love this statue

I saw this statue outside the Royal Palace in Budapest last August and just had to get a picture of it. It reminds me of my favorite poem:

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

--William Carlos Williams

I'm not much on plums (can't stand them, actually), but it was so hot outside that day that I might well have been tempted to steal one out of an icebox and eat it to finally cool off a bit!

I love that poem as well. Do you ever visit PostSecret? That poem reminds me of one of my favorite secrets. It said "I ate all the blueberries and they were delicious."
