THE WITCH IN THE GLASS, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: My mother says I must not pass
Last Line: The very thing you should not know!
Alternate Author Name(s): Piatt, Sarah
Subject(s): Children; Witchcraft & Witches; Childhood


"MY mother says I must not pass
Too near that glass;
She is afraid that I will see
A little witch that looks like me,
With a red, red mouth, to whisper low
The very thing I should not know!"
Alack for all your mother's care!
A bird of the air,
A wistful wind, or (I suppose
Sent by some hapless boy) a rose
With breath too sweet, will whisper low
The very thing you should not know!
