Shadows here and shadows there,

Shadows on the ground;

As the morning sun appears,

Shadows all around.


Shadows long and shadows short,

Shadows on the wall;

With the emerging gift of light,

Shadows for us all.


Shadows streaking everywhere,

Shadows o’er the lawn;

Shadows always at their best,

Following on the dawn.


To look upon your shadow,

Rise early in the morn;

On seeing the segmented sun,

Your shadow will be born.


Monty Alexander 17.4.99
