by Edward Alexander MacDowell (1860 - 1908)

Language: English 
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.
