I haven't seen this here, although it may have been done. How about a picture theme.

My Shadow
Poem lyrics of My Shadow by Robert Louis Stevenson.
From Child's Garden of Verses

I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me,
And what can be the use of him is more than I can see.
He is very, very like me from the heels up to the head;
And I see him jump before me, when I jump into my bed.

The funniest thing about him is the way he likes to grow--
Not at all like proper children, which is always very slow;
For he sometimes shoots up taller like an india-rubber ball,
And he sometimes goes so little that there's none of him at all.

He hasn't got a notion of how children ought to play,
And can only make a fool of me in every sort of way.
He stays so close behind me, he's a coward you can see;
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.

agree.gif  It's always worth gettin' up a little early for.

The earth's shadow dropped lower and lower in the atmosphere. Finally, it reached the top of Glacier Peak. The precip that had kept me home for a week, had also given GP a fresh whitewash.

Del Campo, Foggy Gap, and the towers of Gothic were pretty clearly represented at sundown.
