Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Leverage score music by Joseph LoDuca

"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, red mouth to whisper low
The very thing I should not know!"

"Alack for all your mother’s care!
A bird of the air,
A wistful wind, or (I suppose
Sent by some hapless boy) a rose,
With breath too sweet, will whisper low
The very thing you should not know!"

- The Witch in the Glass by Sarah Morgan Bryan Piatt

This poem reminded me a bit of I Know Things Know, Little Red Riding Hood's song from the musical Into the Woods.
