The Thursday Poem

Potted Flowers with Books IV
Eric Barjot


Night

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,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies,
When love is done.

Francis William Bourdillon
(22nd March 1852 - 30th January 1921)
