“She Walks in Beauty” … a Poem by Lord Byron … read by Alice ..

Dear Ones,

Here’s a lovely poem, “She Walks in Beauty,” by the great Romantic poet George Gordon, Lord Byron. I like that it associates feminine beauty with good character.

There are also some nature photos, mostly taken around sunset, and the beautiful instrumental song “Cylinder Four” by Chris Zabriskie, from http://freemusicarchive.org

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 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.” (1)

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
