The Night Has a Thousand Eyes

The Night Has a Thousand Eyes

by Francis William Bourdillon

love is gone

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.
