DMC: "Hide and Seek" by Janie Lazo


Let’s play a game of hide and seek
My best friend said to me
Then off she ran as there I sat
Leaned up against a tree
I counted up to ten and yelled
Get ready here I come
But then I went inside the house–
This game seemed quite ho hum
I watched some TV, ate a snack
And read my favorite book
When I got bored I went outside
Perhaps I’ll take a look
As I went out her mom pulled up–
C’mon it’s time to go
Our game was done– our friendship too
I guess I was too slow

TLD reader Tabatha Yeatts has challenged us to write a poem about a game (any kind). Click HERE for more details and to add your poem to the padlet. While some poems will be shared as daily ditties this month, all contributions will be included in a wrap-up celebration this Friday, March 27th.


  1. A tough way to learn a lesson (and lose a friend), but makes for a great little ditty, Janie!

  2. Oh, no, wrong choice. You've told it well, Janie.

  3. This is how it always went with my sisters. Ha! Great job.

  4. A completely fresh take! Well done, Janie.
