Hide & Seek

Almost gotcha! (Giggle, peek)

I always lose at hide & seek.

Behind the bushes! (rustle, run)

I almost caught my foxy son.

Between the shadows! (crouch ‘n stare)

I thought I saw his rumpled hair.

I’m the pirate! (hold your breath)

Who brings you fifteen-second death.

Or I’m the soldier! (Stand real still)

With knives, and guns and things that kill.

Or savage injun! (Crawl ‘n creep)

Who seeks to scalp you in your sleep.

But somehow every time we play,

You always seem to get away.

But you enjoy it. (Kiss my cheek)

You always win at hide & seek.

    Thank you. I was inspired by my son many years ago. I just recovered if from poetry I wrote in 1983.
