Bourdillon was a prolific poet and served as tutor to the sons of Prince Christian of Schleswig-Holstein at Cumberland Lodge for several years. He published thirteen collections of poetry between 1874 and 1921, as well as single poems and narrative verses, many of them anonymous and privately printed in limited editions. He is best-known today for the short poem “Light” (‘The night has a thousand eyes.”) Many of the poems demonstrate a distinct predeliction for fair haired boys.
