    “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 mouth to whisper low
The very thing I should not know.”
          The Witch in the Glass.

    This was your butterfly, you see—
  His fine wings made him vain:
The caterpillars crawl, but he
  Passed them in rich disdain.—
My pretty boy says, “Let him be
  Only a worm again!”
          After Wings.
