Mirror, Mirror

A young spring-tender girl
combed her joyous hair
'You are very ugly' said the mirror.
But,
on her lips hung
a smile of dove-secret loveliness,
for only that morning had not
the blind boy said,
'You are beautiful'?

Love his poems
Though, it may seem symbolic but beauty is a matter of perception. It may differ from person to person. The poem underscores this fact. Thanks.
On her lips! ! Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
Mirror can reflect the facial beauty but can't show the inner beauty. It is a beautiful poem in brief.
What a sweet drop! ! The girl is happy that someone has taken interest in her despite what the mirror says. So nice!
