She Walks in Beauty

George Gordon 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 mellowed to the tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One ray the more, one shade the less
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
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.

Can you believe we haven’t posted a single Byron poem yet? This one should need no introduction – if you’ve read any poetry at all, you’ve read this one. It’s not a poem I myself admire too much, but it has a nice ring to it, and well, it just wouldn’t be a collection of audio poems without it.
