If All Persons Shadowed
where must you found
if all traces
to shadow you?
when you are found
at last, how must you doubt
the persons that found
if all persons shadowed
you, how will i know
it were you
that they shadowed?
what person would that be
if all shadows of you
faded away at sunset
and never to a rainbow?
