    she didn’t know when she got it

    when she was younger she would hang out

    by her daddy’s gate

    all the us boys would pass her by

    our mouths all agape

    she was always sweet and innocent

    had that toothpaste smile

    she didn’t know when she go it

    but she got it by a mile

    she didn’t know when it happened

    but when it happened

    she knew what she had

    and what she had

    drove all of us

    innocent young boys mad

    she used to go downtown

    after the movie

    just hang around

    all us would follow her

    hanging on the lamp posts

    just watching her

    move around

    she would walk down main street

    walking the only way she knew how

    she never watched us looking

    grinning that young kid smile

    she didn’t know when she got it

    but she got it by a mile

    Great poem, brought back memories of when I was younger, and that song, baby's got her blue jeans on. Fun, and light, and sweet in a special way. Write on......Tlady

    Nice write, wish I was there hanging around too. Never got googoo eyed over any chicks back then myself. Only one heated infatuation before it burned out. The rest of the chicks were just that, till my wife came along. Loved the recurring theme of her not knowing when she got it. She wasn't a snob on a pedestal, just a natural beauty? Blessings, W.



    She wasa a girl that stuck in my mind from my early teens.. 12'ish..Yep real pretty sassy semi-innocent..I was skinny and goofy..

    A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

    Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
