The Mirror by Edmund Burke



Rene Magritte


 The Mirror

 I look in the mirror
 And what do I see?
 A strange looking person
 That cannot be me.
 For I am much younger
 And not nearly so fat
 As that face in the mirror
 I am looking at.
 Oh, where are the mirrors
 That I used to know
 Like the ones which were
 Made thirty years ago?
 Now all things have changed
 And I’m sure you’ll agree
 Mirrors are not as good
 As they used to be.
 So never be concerned,
 If wrinkles appear
 For one thing I’ve learned
 Which is very clear,
 Should your complexion
 Be less than perfection,
 It is really the mirror
 That needs correction!!

  Edmund Burke, 1729 – 1797, Irish Philosopher.
