She Walks in Beauty…

IMG_4757 (500x333)

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….
-Lord Byron

read the poem in full here…

In honor of National Poetry Month I am going to try and post my favorite snippets throughout April.

I like how this one by Byron just flows, almost like a melody.
Enjoy your week!

  1. Hi Naida,

    Byron, another of those instantly recognisable British poets, with his typical eloquence, grace and flowing prose.

    This style is quite a long way removed from some of the Latin American poets you have quoted in the past, so I hope that you are enjoying sharing 🙂
