REVELATION

by Robert Frost

We make ourselves a place apart

Behind light words that tease and float,

But oh, the agitated heart

Till someone really find us 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, from babes that play

At hide-and-seek to God afar,

So all who hide too well away

Must speak and tell us where they are.

  1. I like this poem! It seems very appropriate to the trend you've got going here too. I like it when you "speak and tell [me] where [you] are"!
