"Revelation" - Robert Frost


We make ourselves a place apart
     Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
     Til someone find 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 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.
