Creative Challenge ~ The Mirror ~

The Mirror Effect

Oh! how Venus enchants us all. 

As she looks Into her mirror

And we see her face aglow

Does she see what we see?

 This beauty reclining so

The answer to this question is 

A Definite No

How clever was this artist

Who chose us not to know

That when Venus viewed her mirror

It was the unsuspecting spectator

Who really was on show.

Verse by Milli

Painting of Venus at Her Mirror by

Diego Rodriguez de Silva y Velazquez
