She Walks In Beauty

Isis Town and Country - - Opinion - 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 mel­lowed to that ten­der light Which heaven to gaudy day de­nies. One shade the more, one ray 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!
