Description

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 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 sometime get so little that there’s non of him at all.
