"Mirror, Mirror"

Mirror, mirror, show me how
I have looked for hours now.
Ah, the form of me I see,
Lovely femininity!
Eyes so bright and radiant smile --
I'm so happy for a while.
But the time it goes so fast;
Two or three more hours passed.

Now the mirror shows the stare:
Saddened eyes, the smile's not there.
Very soon I have to be
What the world expects of me.
So I put myself away
And await another day
When I may resume her form --
Briefly calm the raging storm.
