Walt Whitman - That Shadow, my Likeness.

THAT shadow, my likeness, that goes to and fro, seeking a livelihood, chattering,
    chaffering; 
How often I find myself standing and looking at it where it flits; 
How often I question and doubt whether that is really me; 
—But in these, and among my lovers, and caroling my songs, 
O I never doubt whether that is really me.         5
