To one or two? Can I look at this face without a twinge of shame? Face in the mirror, remember your pledge? Romantic temper allied to a classic edge; To chisel out the crystal line, And make it strong, not to refine; To clip but not to maim the living hedge. Face in the mirror, a Journey still to go, Towards the final winter snow, I shall go with you where you will, If only courage pay the mounting bill. Face in the mirror answer yes or no To the pull of your history. Atone, Then go your chosen way alone. Text
