FACES IN THE NIGHT, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: I see them through the night
Last Line: Look rather with the eyes that once ye had!
Alternate Author Name(s): Dara, William
Subject(s): Faces


I SEE them through the night,
Those still, but speaking faces,
Faces full of dreams,
Like lonely forest places,
Fringed with glooming light,
And fraught with hush of leaves and withered streams.

Who look along the night
With such dream-laden eyes,
Eyelids drooped and sad?
Ah, days that will not rise,
Plumed for no new flight,
Look rather with the eyes that once ye had!
