Unwillingly Miranda wakes,
Feels the sun with terror,
One unwilling step she takes,
Shuddering to the mirror.

My my how time changes the thinking.....
big mistake? mirrors only bring heartache
Time...... Tick tick tick it does not wait for you or I, or even the lady Miranda.!

What a brilliant ending to an awesome poem! ! TO
A beautiful reflection on what makes one old... does the passage of time affect our age? What is one day from the next if we do not make it so.
