Poem of the Week
She Walks in Beauty
By Lord Byron
She walks in beauty, like the night
….Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that’s best of dark and bright
….Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellow’d to that tender light
….Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
….Had half impair’d the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven trees,
….Or softly lightens o’er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
….How pure, how dear their dwelling place.
And on that cheek, and o’er that brow,
….So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
….But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
….A heart whose love is innocent!
