The Night Has A Thousand Eyes

    The night has a thousand eyes,
    And the day but one;
    Yet the light of a bright world dies
    When day is done.
    ****
    The mind has a thousand eyes,
    And the heart but one;
    Yet the light of a whole life dies
    When love is done.

    Francis William Bourdillon
