Poem by Francis William Bourdillon

* * *

  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.

Francis William Bourdillon
