The Night has a Thousand Eyes

Original Text: 
F. W. Bourdillon, Ailes d'alouette (Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1891): 13. NAC p.v. 475 [7] New York Public Library
1The night has a thousand eyes,
2    And the day but one;
3Yet the light of the bright world dies
4    With the dying sun.
5The mind has a thousand eyes,
6    And the heart but one:
7Yet the light of a whole life dies
8    When love is done.
