The Night has a Thousand Eyes

Francis William Bourdillon
1852 – 1921

The night has a thousand eyes,

    And the day but one;

Yet the light of the bright world dies

    With the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes,

    And the heart but one:

Yet the light of a whole life dies

     When love is done.
