The Shadow

Would you believe the one thing the shadow does not know is how he came to be.
Stand in the sun and look to the other side of your body from which the sun does shine.
There you will find the shadow, which is something that cannot hear or see.
And, furthermore, the shadow seems to not even have a mind for it lives it's short life just fine.

Then the clouds whisk the sun from view and the shadow does not even say ouch..
For it goes into oblivion as if it never were.
Also, it seems, a magician will never find that shadow in any pouch.
Nor in any fine coat made of fur.

So in reality, the shadow is nothing to fear as it can do no harm.
Not even upon a farm.

But, the object that comes to block the light can be good or bad.
If you are playing as a child and your mother approaches and blocks the light.
Then you have no reason to be sad.
Unless you had done something wrong such as getting into a fight.
