Over the fence,
Pockets full of joy,
Reckless youth in the sun.

Tore his blue jeans,
That beautiful boy,
Over the fence.

Sins for a means,
Ever so coy,
Reckless youth in the sun.

First across the greens,
He pledges a toy,
Over the fence.

First of sixteens,
Achilles to my Troy,
Reckless youth in the sun.

King of the queens,
That beautiful boy.
Over the fence,
Reckless youth in the sun.

    youth can be confusing, this takes shape with this poem and makes it..almost like a moral.

    I read Song of Achilles recently so when I saw the title of the piece I was like aAAaaAaAa and this poem definitely did not disappoint!! I love your interpretation of the tale and the repetition of ‘reckless youth in the sun’ is so beautiful!!
