SUMMER PLAY:night lights
Daylight I remember is shorter in September
Time to play in the night never did give a fright
Hide and seek we did play nighttime better than during the day
The night sky had lights to show which way we should go
As we scattered to find our hiding place it felt like a serious race
The night covered us very well that the seeker couldn’t easily tell
Where we hid is the task that would not really last
It’s soon time for bed our playfulness went to sleepy heads
Stars bid us good night as our dreams took high flight
