Noonday sun or night
Have for me one light.
Love shines in it bright,
Through deep brown eyes.
Scoffers tell a tale
That love grows pale,
That brown eyes fail.
Ah, how wise! Ah, how wise!
Surely true love's might
Puts such fears to flight.
In those brown eyes bright
Love never dies.

This website began in 1995 as a personal project, and I have been working
on it full-time without a salary since 2008. Our research has
never had any government or institutional funding, so if you
the information here useful, please consider making a donation. Your gift is greatly appreciated.
