Beneath a Cherry Tree

She held my hand, beneath a tree
Leaning forward, a kiss so sweet
The taste of her, like Cherry Coke
Sunlit beauty a gorgeous smile
Beneath a tree a kiss so sweet

I pulled her near, wanting her close
Pretty brown eyes, looked into mine
As time stood still, my heart quickened
Gentle breezes lifted her dress 
A kiss so sweet, like Cherry Coke

Some memories, will never fade
Me just a boy, she was sixteen
A lovely part of yesterday
I lose myself there for a while
A gorgeous smile, she held my hand


A modified Eileenesque Poem.

    wow, so here is an Eileenesque poem. WE really have to get this form popularized somehow. She will be so thrilled about that if it can get around the internet!! This is a cool poem, Richard. I love cherry coke and I love the way this poem describes the feeling of a young boy in love.
