by Thomas Hardy (1840 - 1928)

One without looks in tonight
Language: English 
One without looks in tonight
Through the curtain-chink
From the sheet of glistening white;
One without looks in tonight
[As]1 we sit and think
By the fender-brink.

We do not discern those eyes
Watching in the snow;
Lit by lamps of rosy dyes
We do not discern those eyes
Wondering, aglow,
Four-footed, tiptoe.
