Treading Lightly

Treading lightly
Up
And
Down
The
Stairs.

Don’t make the floor squeak.
Don’t make the hinges speak.
Walk
Carefully
Silently
Lightly
Up
And
Down
The
Stairs.

If they catch you, disappear quickly.
Let them believe it was a trick of the light.
Or maybe the result of too much cotton candy.

But as a general rule, do not let them catch you
Treading
Quickly
Softly
Lightly
Up
And
Down
The
Stairs.
