Night (Bourdillon)

From Immortal Poetry
Jump to: navigation, search

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.

by Francis William Bourdillon.
