621. The Shadow Dance
 
By Louise Chandler Moulton
 
 
SHE sees her image in the glass,—
  How fair a thing to gaze upon!
  She lingers while the moments run,
With happy thoughts that come and pass,
 
Like winds across the meadow grass        5
  When the young June is just begun:
She sees her image in the glass,—
  How fair a thing to gaze upon!
 
What wealth of gold the skies amass!
  How glad are all things ’neath the sun!        10
  How true the love her love has won!
She recks not that this hour will pass,—
She sees her image in the glass.
