fly by night operation quotes

At the mid hour of night, when stars are weeping, I fly
To the lone vale we loved when life was warm in thine eye,
I have need of night people.
I have need to see the bum dozing
What were our praise to them? They eat
Quiet's wild heart, like daily meat;
The fly sat upon the axel-tree of the chariot-wheel and said, What a dust do I raise!
This is the Night Mail crossing the Border,
Bringing the cheque and the postal order,
It was a chilly winter's night;
And frost was glitt'ring on the ground,
And evening stars were twinkling bright;
Every morn and every night
Some to misery are born.
Nature in darkness groans
And men are bound to sullen contemplation in the night:
If thought is life
And strength & breath,
The night has a thousand eyes,
And the day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.
