Love: Ft. Lord Byron

I found this on the Poetry Foundation website. This is my last post of the night but I will be setting up a theme of writers, authors, poets, and just people in general to feature every once and while. You will see a heading as my previous two posts:
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!
We should all be more aware of the little things, because those are what give us the purest joy in our hearts.
