This lady, we figure out, isn't extremely content with her appearance in the lake, so she tries to discover a kinder reflection under the light of a candle or the moon. The woman in this case is not only looking but staring with concentration on the image in the lake as she tries to understand and get every detail of the reflection. The poet shows that the lady is to find the truth about her from the lake reflection. At the point when the lake reflects her reliably in any case, she yells and gets agitated. The woman is seen to be vexed as the last two line of the stanza depicts. This can be derived from her keen study of the watery reflection of her, her past is suffocating, and unpleasant future is climbing to reach her(Mitra).Conclusion"Mirror" is a despairing and much biting ballad that epitomizes the strains in the middle of inward and external selves, and in addition demonstrates the supernaturally ladylike "issue" of maturing and losing one's excellence. The woman in the poem is seen to fear the old age as it is associated with challenges. The poem uses the word sad and angry to show that the woman is not happy of her aging, and more to that, she can do nothing to stop the development.
