Theme: Childhood

Hide and Seek


In a bus full of people
I spot two kids
Shy, quiet and self-conscious
When I first look at them,
They shrink and sink
Down, down in their seats.
Not wanting to scare them
I look away
They give me a longing look
Waiting to be found again
They sneak a look at me
I smile again
At the hide and seek
Oh, the Hide and Seek,
For the hide and seek
That we adults play
Starts very early.
