"We make ourselves a place apart
  Behind light words that tease and flout
But oh, the agitated heart
  Till someone finds us really out.

Tis pity if the case require
  (or so we say) that in the end
We speak the literal to inspire
  The understanding of a friend.

But so with all, for babes that play
  At hide + seek to God afar
So all who hide too well away
  Must speak and tell us where they are."
