Love's a game


Love's a game,
of hide and seek,
now you see me,
now you don't.

Love's a game,
of peek-a-boo,
here one minute,
gone the next.

Love's a game,
of tag,
one minute you're IT,
the next you're not.

Love's a game,
of hopscotch,
hopping from one square,
to the next.

Love's a game,
of ring-o-rosies,
atishoo, atishoo,
you always fall down.

Love's a game,
of cat's cradle,
eventually the ball
of string gets tangled.

Love's a game,
of double dutch,
you skip one rope only,
to get caught in the other.

Love's a game,
of cops and robbers,
one steals aheart,
the other catches them.

Love's a game,
of duck duck goose,
there is always
an odd one out.
