Robert Frost (1874–1963).  A Boy’s Will.  1915.
 
21. Revelation
 
 
WE make ourselves a place apart
  Behind light words that tease and flout,
But oh, the agitated heart
  Till someone find us really out.
 
’Tis pity if the case require        5
  (Or so we say) that in the end
We speak the literal to inspire
  The understanding of a friend.
 
But so with all, from babes that play
  At hide-and-seek to God afar,        10
So all who hide too well away
  Must speak and tell us where they are.
