My Shadow

by Robert L. Stevenson

I have a little shadow

that goes in and out with me,

And what can be the use of him

is more than I can see.

He is very, very like me

from the heels up to the head;

And I see him jump before me,

when I jump into my bed.

The funniest thing about him

is the way he likes to grow-

Not at all like proper children,

which is always very slow;

For he sometimes shoots up taller

like an India-rubber ball,

And he sometimes gets so little

that there’s none of him at all.

He hasn’t got a notion

of how children ought to play,

And can only make a fool of me

in every sort of way.

He stays so close beside me,

he’s a coward you can see;

I’d think shame to stick to nursie

as that shadow sticks to me!

One morning, very early,

before the sun was up,

I rose and found the shining dew

on every buttercup,

But my lazy little shadow,

like an errant sleepyhead,

Had stayed at home behind me

and was fast asleep in bed.
