but before that…

spring and summer and me and dee
went to a park
to play hide and seek
summer’s turn came first
and off went we three
as i hid behind a trunk
dee climbed up the tree
while spring chose a bush
but kept jumping up & down with glee
shh spring, i said
don’t bounce up like a spring
summer is strong, and smart unlike thee
you’ll be caught the moment
she opens her eyes to see
shh you, naughty spring said to me
i’ve spread dried leaves all over the place
when summer comes
we’ll hear as she treads
shh now, do you hear her coming
shh listen, here is she
