"HIDE AND SEEK"
by Walter de la Mare


Hide and seek, says the Wind,
In the shade of the woods;
Hide and seek, says the Moon,
To the hazel buds;
Hide and seek, says the Cloud,
Star on to star;
Hide and seek, says the Wave,
At the harbour bar;
Hide and seek, say I,
To myself, and step
Out of the dream of Wake
Into the dream of Sleep.


 

Walter de la Mare was a British poet, short story writer, and novelist. He is probably best remembered for his works for children and his short stories.
