In The Orchard

Rating: 3.5
'I thought you loved me.' 'No, it was only fun.'
'When we stood there, closer than all?' 'Well, the harvest moon
Was shining and queer in your hair, and it turned my head.'
'That made you?' 'Yes.' 'Just the moon and the light it made
Under the tree?' 'Well, your mouth, too.' 'Yes, my mouth?'
'And the quiet there that sang like the drum in the booth.
You shouldn't have danced like that.' 'Like what?' 'So close,
Whith your head turned up, and the flower in your hair, a rose
That smelt all warm.' 'I loved you. I thought you knew
I wouldn't have danced like that with any but you.'
'I didn't know, I thought you knew it was fun.'

Confused by the love shown to him, it's his insecurities. She is only a mirror to him and poor thing doesn't understand it..yet.

I would give this poem a ten but PH hasn't allowed me to rank a poem in a month or so.

Every teenage girl should have to memorize this piece, do a research paper on it and the effects of teenage on the rest of her life in all the realms that characterize a female's life. Because this poem really reveals the truth about boys at this age in their life and perhaps all the rest of their life. I liked the style of this wise poem.
