Ghost Children

Three pairs of children hide and glide under a ghost costume.

The class gone home, I mark my books
When the Ghost Children come out to play
“Do you remember us old Sir
from a time long before yesterday -
our ancient crazes, ways and dreams
that are no longer up on display?
Forgotten hopes, where did they go?”
Then the ghost children fade away
