Obviously posed, but I expect they really did stuff like that.

Anybody here know about schools for the blind in more recent times?

Obviously? I don't think so. Hide and seek simply meant stand still and try not to make a noise. I bet part of the game required the "seeker" to call out the name of the "hider" she caught.

And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it's sinking
Racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in a relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death.
