I Peered Into the Window

Puebla window
 

I peered into the window,
And there what did I see?
Dreamy shapes made manifest,
Staring back at me!

I could not understand it,
I thought I’d lost my mind,
The shapes were there before me—
Before me, not behind!

I glanced away so quickly,
I nearly snapped my neck;
I stilled my heart a moment—
And then I ran like heck!
