And now a poem that Balroop Singh thought we would enjoy….The Irish always did have a way with words.

*The Mirror*

(Edmund Burke 1729-1797,
Irish Philosopher)

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/ extra flab 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.

  1. When I read this poem, I nodded all the way and thought – why are the mirrors becoming so insensitive! 🙂 🙂 Thank you for sharing it Sally. When my grandson looks at my old pics, he refuses to believe that they are mine!!

  2. Okay, I confess that I have read through one of those elongated Facebook arguments just to see where somebody goes off the rails. 🤣
