Mirror mirror in the board
Decipher the riddle of this horde
How many moves to it, please?
To put my brain at ease!
Both sides help, follow their paths
The solution you must craft
Oh, and there is but one way
Good luck, now off and away!

There is one question in this poem riddle, and it is

How many moves to it, please?

Both sides help, follow their paths

The solution you must craft

Oh, and there is but one way

which I think it means

How many moves leading to checkmate

and

I think this is the answer: lichess analysis

21 moves, white forces moves to lead to a checkmate, taking advantage of the mirrored version.

Please tell me if this is the answer.
