by Lucy Thompson
There was a hiding place,
an icy shadowy eerie place,
filled with mite, beetle and mosquito
grime and gilings covered the ground,
tic, trinkle, trill came the sound,
of the torrent punishing the ground
you must be careful to not make a sound,
as this is a vicinity to not be found,
there was a hiding place,
an ancient ruination cramped place,
not familiar to anyone around,
this covert nook could never be found
for it is the hiding place.
