Magical Portals - The Leonine

Deciphering this as well as some of my other old runic inscriptions has driven home the idea that runes shifted through time. I'm not sure what version of runic alphabet I originally used, but it seems to be some later Saxon variant. This is an old riddle, but it appears I may have had a Middle English version of it encoded into runes.
Lookest at my face and I'm someone--
Lookest at my back and I'm nought.
Put a mirror up to the lion head and it will roar and open the door.
