For the Twiglets Truth

 

The Mirror

The house is older,
and grand in the way of things made
as best they can be within the limits
of the era and place, and the knowledge
of the designer and skills of the builders.
The entrance hall is rather dark, but
it contains a broad mirror opposing
the door, taller than the door and framed
with the same dark wood that constitutes
the door and its frame, the floor, walls,
base boards, and shadowed moldings.
The house, door, and mirror are so sited
that anyone entering in the late afternoon
of all but the grimmest of days can see
nothing but the light that until that moment
has surrounded them all unregarded.
