Bourdillon published thirteen collections of poetry between 1874 and 1921, as well as single poems and narrative verses, many of them privately printed in limited editions. He is best-known today for the short poem "Light" ('The night has a thousand eyes.") Among his other publications were scholarly editions and translations of Old French literature; his translation of Aucassin et Nicolette appeared in 1887 and was a popular success.

In addition, Bourdillion was a member of the Alpine Club and campaigned for the preservation of the Alps against excessive development. He died in Eastbourne in 1921.
