The Shadow

My kid:) mine. Thank you Pam!

Poetry by Pamela

I am so pleased to present a poem by Avery Martin. Avery is 8 years old and has quite a future ahead of him with his writing. I love this poem. Avery won the national junior poet competition at his school. Don’t you agree that he has a bright future?

My shadow has a human
It doesn’t grow or stretch
My human is kinda boring
He won’t even play fetch.

My shadow has a human
That seems to follow me
Wherever I go
That human seems to be

I grow taller as the day wears on
But the human doesn’t change
He claims that I follow him
But I think that’s just strange

Everyone knows that shadows
have always been here
Before people roamed the earth
Shadows were still near

We could take the shape
Of a flower or a tree
We could walk alongside
A t-Rex or a bee

  1. Hello Avery ~
    How interesting it is to read a shadow’s point of view – for a change! I’m impressed with your entire poem. Especially, the last two stanzas are so very imaginative and whimsical.
    Congratulations on winning the poetry contest. What a thrill this must be for you!
