Lord Byron Quote

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."
Lord Byron
Hebrew Melodies (1815) Byron was notorious for his varied tastes in both women and men. This poem was written about one Mrs. R. Wilmot. (Berry Memoirs, vol. iii. p. 7), about whom little is known. This was not the only poem directed at a woman who Byron did not revisit in later work. Regardless, one cannot discount the simplicity and subsequent beauty of the poem. Add Category or Author
