To Thee, Lovely Maiden In Front Of The Mirror





To thee, lovely maiden in front of the mirror
Let thee by an older Fraulein, be forewarned
Thy raving locks will let thee down, my dearest
And leave thee like many a fair ‘Venus’, scorned

Thy beaming beauty will fade like a flower
Thy fairest form to Time’s hand is fair game
To thee, lovely maiden in front of the mirror
Fix thy joy on something years cannot maim 

...but if thou wouldst worship the face in the mirror
Beaming with pride at the hide we call Youth
Then, I pray listen to this tidbit of caution
Someone is waiting to show you the truth

  1. Oh, those mirrors...especially the ones in changing rooms at stores -- those seem to be the worst :)

    "Fix thy joy on something years cannot maim" -- the best advice!

    2. You'd think mirrors at stores would be the most flattering, with the best soft lighting -- to boost the sales.. :)
