Hello and welcome to SELIGOR'S CASTLE. I hope you enjoy this new poem

 FOR THE VERY YOUNG

My Shadow
by Robert Louis Stevenson

Me
and My Shadow, down by the seaI 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.
 
Funny
the way she likes to grow
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 goes so little that there's none of him at all. 



He stays
so close behind me.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 behind me, he's a coward you can see; 
I'd think shame to stick to nursie as that shadow sticks to me! 

I found the shiney dew on the buttercup
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 arrant sleepy-head, 
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
