Treasure Island

Marianne Soher

(20 June 1933 / Sofia, Bulgaria)

THE ONE IN MY MIRROR


The small one in my mirror
Smiles and frowns at the world
She moves little yet frets
Changes her moods and frames

The old one in my mirror
Does not want me to see
The depths of her wild sadness
When she looks inside me

The fresh one in the mirror
Awakes her early morn
With the song of the new day
And a raw taste of choice

The real one in the mirror
Yet does like what she sees
In spite of all the wrinkles
‘cause she likes to be me

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,

In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
