Encounter With a Shadow

  • As the sun shone bright behind me
  • The girl that I had been
  • Appeared in slender shadow
  • As I walked westward home.
  • Passing by a window
  • I marveled at the difference
  • The stocky, shrunken figure
  • That the girl had now become.


  • As the day ages
  • So do I
  • Sun moves past me
  • Bright and high
  • Until the shrinking shadow
  • Almost disappears
  • As did the girl whose girlish dreams
  • Shrink through the passing years.
