Shadow dear shadow,
do you know from where
you’ve come?

Are you aware at all,
of where you will go
in the fall and in the winter?

Shadow dear shadow,
at blazing summers zenith
you stand full and tall.

Chasing suns rays
across a blue horizon,
flickering as clouds pass by.

Shadow dear shadow
how you dance in the wind,
dipping gracefully against the gale.

I will miss your quiet strength,
your testament to the hot season.
Until next year, farewell dear shadow.

    Wonderful, it does raise the question though so where do shadows go on their winter break 🧐
