The Mirror

Poem by A. A. Milne
Set to music by Dacoda


Between the woods the afternoon

Is fallen in a golden swoon

The sun looks down from quiet skies

To where a quiet water lies

And silent trees stoop down to trees


And there I saw a white swan make

Another white swan in the lake

And breast to breast, both motionless

They waited for the wind’s caress

And all the water was at ease
