Day One: Annie Twitchell // Mirror Mirror...

April 03, 2018





Mirror Mirror,
Mirror on the Wall…
Darling girl,
the mirror tells but lies.
Tells of skin and beauty
like crushed rose petals.
Mirror Mirror,
Mirror on the Wall…
No!
  Darling girl,
the mirror is but glass.
The eyes that see
are merely your own.

Darling girl,
fairest of them all
are not yet words
that silver glass may speak.

Darling girl,
‘tis not the mirror
that lies to your heart.
You yourself are both
deceiver and deceived.

Darling girl,
there is no magic
in shattered glass.
But magic there is
in a heart that is strong,
in a love that is true,
and in hands that reach out.




 Annie Louise Twitchell is a homeschool graduate who is obsessed with dragons and fairy tales. She enjoys reading, writing, poetry, and many forms of art. When she’s not writing, she can often be found reading out loud to her cat, rabbit, and houseplants, or wandering barefoot in the area around her Western Maine home.
In addition to five published works, she has pieces in three anthologies and several poetry awards. She has traveled to various schools to speak about writing and her journey forward.
