In the Room by James Thomson.

Part 6 of 13.

The mirror sneer

’d with scornful spite,
(That ancient crack which spoil’d her looks
Had marr’d her temper), Write and write!
And read those stupid, worn-out books!
That’s all he does,—read, write, and read,
And smoke that nasty pipe which stinks:
He never takes the slightest heed
How any of us feels or thinks.

But Lucy fifty times a day
Would come and smile here in my face,
Adjust a tress that curl’d astray,
Or tie a ribbon with more grace:
She look’d so young and fresh and fair,
She blush’d with such a charming bloom,
It did one good to see her there,
And brighten’d all things in the room.

    The mirror now complains that all the man does is read and write and smoke his pipe. The mirror is frustrated because the man never thinks about the other things in the room and how they feel. He just neglects them. Then the mirror reminisces that Lucy, who lived in the room before, was young and beautiful and whose presence in the room made everything bright and happy.
