I gave an eye to save from night...

I gave an eye to save from night
         A babe born blind;
And now with eager semi-sight
         Vast joy I find
To think a child can share with me
         Earth ecstasy!

Delight of dawn with dewy gleam
         On damask rose;
Crimson and gold as pennons stream
         Where sunset flows;
And sight most nigh to paradise,
         Star-studded skies.

Ah! How in old of age I feel,
         E'er end my days,
Could I star-splendoured sky reveal
         To childish gaze,
Not one eye would I give, but two,--
         Well, wouldn't you?
