Passage

My Shadow

I have a little shadow

that goes in and out with me.

And what can be that use of him

is more than I can see.

He is very, very like me

from the heels upto 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 gets so little

and there’s none of him at all

He hasn’t got a notion

of how children, ought to play.

And can only make a foal 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 arrant sleepyhead,

Had stayed at home behind me

and was fast asleep in bed.

– Robert Louis Stevenson

Passage

The storm came on before its time

She wandered up and down;

And many a hill did Lucy climb;

But never reached the town.

The wretched parents all that night

Went shouting far and wide;

But there was neither sound nor sight

To serve them for a guide.

That day-break on a hill, they stood

That overlooked the moor;

And thence they saw the bridge of wood,

A furiong from their door.

They wept and turning homeward, cried,

‘In heaven we all shall meet,

When in the snow the mother spied

The print of Lucy’s feet.

– William Wordsworth
