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
One shade the more,
one ray the less,
Had half impaired
the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly
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
