‘The Night has a thousand Eyes’
By Francis William Bourdillon (1852–1921)
 
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,        5
  And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
  When love is done.
