She Walks In Beauty by Lord Byron

3:06 PM

 I came across a really beautiful poem a few days ago & then not even 2 minutes later a beautiful picture that I felt suited the poem perfectly so I decided to add a few more pictures and share my findings with you. I decided to post this here, since for the most part it is a beauty blog.
Enjoy!

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 mellowed to that tender light

Which heaven to gaudy day denies.


(I've had this saved for so long on my desktop..I don't remember who it's by.)


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.


(Chris Berens)



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!


(Onkel Wart)


The end.

Have a nice weekend!!

Kind words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.
