Give your eyes to the night

"...the stars are the eyes of human beings,
which rise out of their closed lids and become bright and regain their strength.
And that is why all the stars are above the country-side,
where everyone is sleeping,
and over the town there are only a few, because there are so many restless people there,
and reading,
laughing and watching,
who keep their eyes."

-Rilke from The Dream Book

Give your eyes to the night,
so all the stars will stay bright.
