Mamma's Reflection - Poem by Nellie Isabelle Steward Cooper

I dust my cloth
Across the glass
I cannot see her
But she's there
I know

Her pale eyes

Watch me from
The mirror:
Her only window
Now

From the mirror
She watches
From the mirror
She looks

In the mirror
Trapped where you
Cannot see
In the mirror
Prismed
Another me-

The ghost
That haunts
The ghost
That weeps
