BULI OLHARES… MY SHADOW ..

My Shadow

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 sleepy-head,
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
Robert Louis Stevenson

  1. THAT SHADOW MY LIKENESS

    That shadow my likeness that goes to and fro seeking a livelihood, chattering, chaffering,
    How often i find myself standing and looking at it where it flits,
    How often i question and doubt whether that is really me;
    But among my lovers and caroling my songs,
    O I never doubt whether that is really me.

    Walt Whitman, ” Leaves of Grass”, vol.1
