1 She Walks in Beauty English 7-8 Ms. Ledoux Fall 2008/Spring 2009 by George Gordon, Lord Byron

2 She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all thats best of dark and bright Meet in her aspect and her eyes; Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies. 5 Thus mellowed to that tender light Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

3 One shade the more, one ray the less, Had half impaired the nameless grace Which waves in every raven tress, Or softly lightens oer her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express 10 Or softly lightens oer her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

4 And on that cheek, and oer that brow, So soft, so calm, yet eloquent, The smiles that win, the tints that glow, 15 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!
