Shadow Party

By Sioban Timmer


People think that shadows pass

With sunset’s fading light

But that’s when shadows party-

When the daytime turns to night


We assume our fellow shadows

Are always waiting for our call

But when you close your eyes at night

They are not there at all


In sunshine they just copy

(Which can really be a bore)

But free to roam within dark

They dance and fly and soar


The darkness makes it possible

For them to leave your side

And when our shadows get the chance

They wander far and wide


So every night while you’re in bed

And sleep is close to hand

Dream about your shadow

Dancing free across the land.
