Treasure Island

Jacqui Broad

(10 Dec '84)

Mirror


Narcissus,
you man of vain,
looking into the
waterpond,
wishing to see
beyond.
What is it,
you had to gain?
Myself,
is what I see,
if I look at my
reflection,
and it came to my
attention,
it's someone else
I'd rather be.
Mirror, mirror,
on the wall,
mirrors, mirrors,
everywhere I look.
In the mirrors,
mirrors of your eyes,
who is the fairest
of them all?
I look for something
you took,
before I can change
the troubling skies...

    Mirror, mirror, - on the wall, - mirrors, mirrors, - everywhere I look.

    Beautiful is mirror if carries your own picture. Mirror everywhere, I can see your gloom blossoming like cherry blossom.....

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
