Its kinda funny that I received very less poems for this topic as I thought that most poets would start their writing journey with this topic! Guess I will change to a better topic or rather no topic at all for the last two poetry guest blog weeks. If you have a good idea, then please do type out your thoughts in the comments section!
This is one of my favourite poems… It is not a guest blog post and so, please do excuse me!
She Walks in Beauty
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!
Written by Lord Byron.
