Mirror by Sylvia Plath

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
Whatever I see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful ‚
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.

(continued 👇)

TK-421 Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

Found this poem here http://www.rainydaypoems.com/poems-for-kids/nature-poems/castles-in-the-sand-by-...
I don‘t think this is the same person who wrote ‘Cassandra at the Wedding‘. Or is it? Please enlighten if you know.

Cathythoughts I love the poem - there‘s something about building sandcastles & the sea washing them away that I love ... don‘t know about the author 🤷🏻‍♀️ 2d

‘This Pig Went To Market‘ - Beatrix Potter

This pig went to market;
This pig stayed at home;

This pig had a bit of meat;
And this pig had none;

This little pig cried
Wee! wee! wee!
I can't find my way home.

(Illustration by Alice Wheaton Adams)
