She Walks In Beauty

The poem, She Walks In Beauty was the inspiration of June, 1814 when Lord Bryon first saw his cousin the beautiful Mrs. Wilmont. Both had attended a party hosted by Lady Sitwell and Lord Bryon was awestruck by his cousin’s dark hair and fair face and the mingling of various lights and shades upon her. This was to be the essence of his poem about her that was published in 1815. It remains a charming and popular beauty poem.

She Walks In Beauty

For Mrs. Wilmont

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!

Lord Byron ~ Published In 1815
