It was dusk and the stars

Made just enough light

To play the game

We all loved as children:

Hide and seek,

Under the bright yellow moon.

 

Laughter bounced off trees;

Our legs pumped hard; and

Air whistled through our lips

In the summer night.

We danced on feet, 

Lighter than Thistle down.

 

We felt the mighty surge

Of adrenaline in our veins.

Time stood still, 

And we felt invincible.

Joy ran like water in a jug

That never overflows.

 

We were rich then,

Because we were free

And imbued with power

That came from being

Stronger than we thought

We could ever be.
