Ailes d’Alouette

Francis William Bourdillon (1852–1921)
 
THE NIGHT 1 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.
 
Note 1. Bourdillon. ‘Ailes d’Alouette’. Daniel Press. 1890. p. 1. [back]
