How William Carlos Williams’s famous poem about plums in the icebox became a meme.
My favourite:
Hwæt! þēos plumas þe in icebox wære swylce þu ge-saving hǽdfe for þæm breoc-fastum eaten hæbbe ic.
Me forgif mine gyltas for synnum minum Swæt wǽre swa swa ceoll frofer mannum.
Þæs ofereode, þisses swa mæg.

For the curious, it's Petrarchan, Spenserian twice, then four nice easy Shakespearean.
