Moments Of Vision
Which makes of men a transparency,
Who holds that mirror
And bids us such a breast-bare spectacle see
Let Go Of Your Worries
Let go of your worries
and be completely clear-hearted,
like the face of a mirror
that contains no images.
Mewlana Jalaluddin Rumi
A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
The Mirror In The Hall
The rich house had in the hall
An enormous mirror, very old;
Bought at least eighty years ago.
Constantine P. Cavafy
With The Face
With the face goes a mirror
As with the mind a world.
Likeness tells the doubting eye
That strangeness is not strange.
Laura (Riding) Jackson
Art Will Show To Eternity Your Soul
I am a woman, using a mirror everyday,
Like all of you, i'm seeing my reflection into it,
Even i am sad, happy, tired or bored,
What i'm seeing in my mirror it's my physical reality, my own truth.
My mind was a mirror:
It saw what it saw, it knew what it knew.
In youth my mind was just a mirror
In a rapidly flying car,
Edgar Lee Masters
Lady At A Mirror
As in sleeping-drink spices
softly she loosens in the liquid-clear
mirror her fatigued demeanor;
and she puts her smile deep inside.
Rainer Maria Rilke
Hope Holds To Christ The Mind’s Own Mirror Out
Hope holds to Christ the mind's own mirror out
To take His lovely likeness more and more.
It will not well, so she would bring about
An ever brighter burnish than before
Gerard Manley Hopkins
In the last glimmer of late afternoon,
burnished by the sun's oblique farewell,
a mirror shines, across an empty room,
The mirror held your fair, my Fair,
A fickle moment's space.
You looked into mine eyes, and there
For ever fixed your face.
Your Mirror Frame
Methinks I see your mirror frame,
Ornate with photographs of them.
Place mine therein, for, all the same,
I'll have my little laughs at them.
Emily Pauline Johnson
Into my eyes he lovingly looked,
My arms about his neck were twined,
And in the mirror of my eyes,
What but his image did he find?
SHE knew it not:â??most perfect pain
To learn: this too she knew not. Strife
For me, calm hers, as from the first.
'Twas but another bubble burst
Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Before The World Was Made
If I make the lashes dark
And the eyes more bright
And the lips more scarlet,
Or ask if all be right
William Butler Yeats
This Day, O Soul
THIS day, O Soul, I give you a wondrous mirror;
Long in the dark, in tarnish and cloud it lay--But the cloud has
pass'd, and the tarnish gone;
... Behold, O Soul! it is now a clean and bright mirror,
Don't you care for my love? she said bitterly.
I handed her the mirror, and said:
Please address these questions to the proper person!
David Herbert Lawrence
The moon in the bureau mirror
looks out a million miles
(and perhaps with pride, at herself,
but she never, never smiles)
The Woman Of It
Your slit so like mine:
the woman of it,
the warm womanwide of thigh,
& the comfort of it-
On Pallas Bathing, From A Hymn Of Callimachus
Nor oils of balmy scene produce,
Nor mirror for Minerva's use,
Ye nymphs who lave her; she, array'd
In genuine beauty, scorns their aid.
