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.
One morning, very early, before the sun I was up.
I rose and found the shinning dew on every buttercup.
But my lazy little shadow, like and arrant sleepyhead.
Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed.
एक दिन मैं सुबह सूरज निकलने से पहले जग गया। बाहर मैंने हर फूल पर ओस की चमकती बूँदें देखी। लेकिन किसी जिद्दी बच्चे की तरह मेरी छाया घर में ही बिस्तर पर अभी भी सो रही थी।
