When you see this, post poetry in your Journal

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!

– George Gordon, Lord Byron
