, ,

over the pickets I peer
half hidden half safe
watch the games you play

leaping and dancing
sprinklers and hoses
unabashedly spray

startled screams turn
to excited squeals
from daring sparkled grins

unified beat of bare feet
slapping sopping green
foreign steps they all know

shameless shirts conform
dripping wet down free forms
flagrant and fearless they seem

like an anxious child I shrink
guiltily retreat over yellowed grass
christened a voyeur
