The Lights

Ten thousand jewels flash out
When the darkness of night appears;
But O I sometimes think these pearls
Are ten thousand people's tears--

Ten thousand tears that are shed
Through the terrible strife of the day,
And doomed to shine through the city's night
Till the stars have faded away.
