This week Tess at Willow Manor gives us something to reflect upon
Don't Try This at Home if You're a Scaredypants.
You all can pass through mirrors. Yes. You. CAN!
With patience, faith and practise, and a plan.
Start with your tallest. Hand-mirrors are a squeeze,
but the long one in your wardrobe is a breeze!
Take a good look to make sure that is you.
Now then - I'm gonna tell you what to do.
"Refractive Index" is the magic word
(Don't quibble 'That is TWO.' Don't be absurd.)
Repeat three times. Oh, something I forgot.
Your clothes get in the way. Discard the lot.
Now! Flex your muscles and prepare to dive
into the glassy pool. You will survive.
The mirror sees you coming and liquefies.
(The scaredypants might choose to close their eyes)
There now! You're through! Easy-peasy was it not?
Oh drat! There's something else that I forgot!
Forgot to say, "Unlock your wardrobe door
before you . . . .
I don't know, I really don't! You came here to read another dumb Magpie and you end up starkers inside a locked wardrobe, tangled up in last season's dresses and/or suits and pongin' of mothballs. Some people. Really!
