Summary: No idea if this is the correct form but I read up and it might hit the mark. Mum used to tell me about when she would hide her dance shoes in the hedge to pick up later because she wasn't allowed to go dancing on a Sunday :-)

No dancing on Sundays
was the rule of the house
The house she grew up in
surrounded by love and God
The God who loved but craved
obedience on his day of days
For her, on his day 
she craved to worship
The heat of youth, worship
with friends and laughter
Her friends laughed as she
pulled her shoes from the hedge
Shoes she'd hidden as there was
no dancing on Sundays
