“So much has been said and sung of beautiful young girls,
why don’t somebody wake up to the beauty of old women?”
Harriet Beecher Stowe
Harriet Beecher Stowe, 1811 to 1896, also authored Uncle Tom’s Cabin. A lovely quote that seems to be from another era than when it was written.
I look in the mirror and what do I see? Young and beautiful, yes that’s me. Lovely words spoken, beautiful songs sung. about me.
I look in the mirror and what do I see? Old and beautiful, yes that’s me. Lovely words said, beautiful songs sung, about me…
But where are the words? Where are the songs, where can they be? Can’t you see, I am still me?
Wake up you fools, you critical old fools. Look in my mirror and what do you see? Young or old, I’m beautiful you see. Lovely words spoken, beautiful songs sung, about me. Yes, about me! Yes, that’s me, you’ll see.
Mirror, mirror on the wall, please heed my beckoning call. Old and beautiful, yes that’s me. But, am I still the fairest of them all?
