II. Love’s Nature
Light
Francis William Bourdillon (1852–1921)
 
THE NIGHT has a thousand eyes,
    The day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
    With the dying sun.
 
The mind has a thousand eyes,        5
    And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
    When its love is done.
