Mirror! Mirror!


Mirror, Mirror by the River
Where the ruffled waters quiver,
Aren't you rather oddly based,
In a childrens playground placed?
We view you strangely as we pass;
There isn't even any glass!
We look right through you to the view!
Mirrors are not for looking through!
But little children now arrive!
Suddenly you come alive
As they run from side to side;
Hiding where they cannot hide,
Jumping through you, making faces,
Acting tough with rude grimaces;
Primping, prattling and pretending.
Your uses now are never-ending.
Why! I hear a Snow-White call
'Mirror! Mirror! On the wall!'
Mirrors reveal even more here:

Refreshing image of mirror, mirror on the river! Love this poem, I shall have to rearead it again.
It is such a pretty yellow frame set against the blue river.

Happy Mellow Yellow Monday!

I think you had as much fun with this 'mirror' as the kids did. Nice find.
