1 Azhia and Rose

2 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! She walks in beauty

8 Is the etymology (the history of a word's meaning) of any word or words important to the meaning of the poem? A lot of our poem is written in very simple English.

The word actually comes from Old French gaudir "to rejoice, make merry, to jest, scoff at" from late Latin gaudre "to rejoice", a descendant of Latin gaudere "rejoice, be joyful". It is close kin to Greek ganusthai "to rejoice" with an infixed N. (Thanks today to Kathleen of Norway for this elegant if not gaudy lexical trinket from the English word store. This is the 1500th Good Word that we now have in our Good Word dictionary.) Diction (continued…)
