POEM OF THE DAY: The Night Has A Thousand Eyes

Francis William Bourdillon (1852 – 1921).  

The Night Has a Thousand Eyes

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,                       5
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies,
When love is done.
