Behind a Tree

When I was a child hiding behind a tree I had with me a girl and we would go kiss Not of passion, just of friendship can’t you see We giggled and found nothing that was amiss Soon we would be discovered and were punished We weren’t allowed to be acting such as this We didn’t connect again, we were afraid We might get caught kissing with happiness made

    Thanks for the visits to my page..I did not understand the question left on well one of my poems or it might have been the two poets that I shared with you all..I enjoyed reading this one.It was cute..Yes, sometimes in childhood we got punished for something that was on a childest level and adults saw it as on an adult level..Sara
