Unformatted text preview: 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 arrant sleepy-head, Had stayed at home behind me and was fast asleep in bed. This poem is funny to me because it takes something that you really don’t pay much attention to (like your shadow), and makes a story out of it. I also think it’s a little weird though, that he doesn’t notice that everyone else has a shadow. STOP following me!...
