Where Have All The Children Gone?

Don't know. Didn't see
which way they went.

Said they'd be back later.
Might be down by the river
up on the hill

sleeping under a tree.
Could be way over yonder
working the fields

or, they've gone off to sea.
Maybe took to a dreamwalk
out of the blue

barefoot wandering free.
Should be on their way home now
back before long.

Look up and there they'll be.
Till then, open the curtain
set out the lamp.

Might be, they'll need to see
their way home

and, would you light
a candle for me?
