WEP: I Saw You!

The first time I tried to see your face,
it was hidden by stacks of gifts in place.

The second time I tried to see your face,
you ran away at such a rapid pace.

The third time I tried to see your face,
I decided to be a detective and made this my case.

The fourth time I tried to see your face,
I only saw splashes of red, white and a thick bearded trace.

The fifth time I tried to see your face,
daddy, that you? Stop hiding behind the bookcase!


Tagline: A child’s curiosity leads to an unexpected discovery.

This month’s WEP musical theme is ‘The First Time (Ever I Saw Your Face)’ by Ewan MacColl.
