    • Byronic Hero
    •  
    • 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 dwellingplace.  
    • 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!
    THERE be none of Beauty's daughters                       With a magic like Thee;                                                 And like music on the waters                       Is thy sweet voice to me:                                               When, as if its sound were causing                                The charméd ocean's pausing,                           The waves lie still and gleaming,                                    And the lull'd winds seem dreaming:                              And the midnight moon is weaving                                 Her bright chain o'er the deep,                          Whose breast is gently heaving                          As an infant's asleep:                                          So the spirit bows before thee                           To listen and adore thee;                            With a full but soft emotion,                                Like the swell of Summer's ocean.
