'Let's go home now Tweedles.'
I heard the invisable voice say.
I looked behind me
but I could not see anyone.
'Who is there ?'
'Who is there?'
I said these words out loud!
I looked in the tree tops
and there was no one to be seen!
'It's been a good day Tweedles.
We danced in all of the mudpuddles in the forest,
and we played hippy hop
like little toads
Now all the birdies are beginning to peep!
and the sun will soon be going down behind the mountain.
It will be time to sleep very soon!'
My mind was full of wonder, but I was not afraid.
Nothing in my forest can scare me away!
Suddenly I heard the voice again and I looked beside me.
And there- standing right beside me - was my shadow.
My very own shadow!
'Let's go home now.
Come on, I 'll run beside you!
Let's look at the sky
and count all the stars
and look for the brightest
And so we did.
My shadow and me!
Let's go home.
Let's snuggle under blankys
where we will be safe and warm!
Let's peek out the window
whisper nitey nite
to the smiling face in the moon.'
