Be quiet my child

Shush, keep a hush

If you aren’t silent

They will find us


Remain still

Please do not move

For they are looking

And their ears are opened wide


Breathe lightly

The loudest breath—

It will alert them

They will find us.


Close your eyes

Do not fear

If you follow my directions

They will not know we are here


Keep the door shut

Don’t touch a thing

Just stay next to me

And follow my rules


I hear a footstep outside

It is growing near

I beg they do not

Find where we hide
