The Witch in the Glass
By Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt (1836–1919)
 
“MY mother says I must not pass
Too near that glass;
She is afraid that I will see
A little witch that looks like me,
With a red, red mouth to whisper low        5
The very thing I should not know!”
 
“Alack for all your mother’s care!
A bird of the air,
A wistful wind, or (I suppose
Sent by some hapless boy) a rose,        10
With breath too sweet, will whisper low
The very thing you should not know!”
