My Shadow (Children) Poem by C.J. Heck


I have a shadow hooked to me.
Sometimes he's big.
Sometimes he's small.
Sometimes he isn't there at all.

He doesn't seem to like the rain.
(Maybe thunder scares him, too) .
He's gone from me on days like that
'cause there isn't much to do.

But if it's really sunny out,
he doesn't like to hide.
He's hooked right there beside me
and we play all day outside.

    Another great poem, C.J. Reading your work makes me smile - the innocence conveyed through your words - makes me feel like a child again. Thank you for that.

    CJ,

    This is a perfectly lovely children's poem. I would have loved it when I was a child and the child in me still responds with joy to its rhythm, rhyme & the playfulness with which the idea/description is written. (10 from my inner child, smiling with remembrance!)

    These children poems have a comfort to them, perhaps we are all still children! (Report) Reply

    CJ...very good. I liked the idea of having the shadow 'hooked' on. As I read more and more of these wonderful poems for children, I realize that I'm attracted as much to the voice in the poems as to the content and words, which are always clever and surprising. (Report) Reply
