Light


The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright day 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 the love is done.

By F. W. Bourdillon

  1. really beautiful---was this made into a 1950's song?

    if so, the poem's so much better!
