Running through the forest
Running through the trees
Ducking & weaving through the bushes
Crunching on the autumn leaves
I hide behind a log, quiet as can be
“Shhhh, don’t tell anybody I am here!”
“I am playing hide – and – seek”
“I don’t want the boys to find me!”
I giggle mischievously
Peek – a – booing through the bushes
Just for a second
To see if any of those silly boys
Have followed me here!
“Nope, coast is clear!”
“Nobody can find me!”
“Nobody, but me!”
I get pounced on
Smothered in kisses
“Oh no, too late!”
That rascal ‘Johnny Little’ has found me!
I push him of giggling
Brushing off the dirt & leaves
From my pretty little flower dress
So 'Mummy' doesn't tell me off, again!
I run back home
As fast as I can
The cool breeze against my face
Blowing through my leafy, blonde hair
Racing through the front door
Just in time for my dinner
“ I'm hungry!!!”
