  4. 4. She Walks In Beauty like thenight a poem by Lord Byron She walks in beauty, like the night Of cloudless climes and starry skies; And all thats 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 oer her face; Where thoughts serenely sweet express How pure, how dear their dwelling place. And on that cheek, and oer 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!
  5. 5. Camina bella, como la noche Camina bella, como la noche De climas despejados y de cielos estrellados, Y todo lo mejor de la oscuridad y de la luz Resplandece en su aspecto y en sus ojos, Enriquecida así por esa tierna luz Que el cielo niega al vulgar día. Una sombra de más, un rayo de menos, Hubieran mermado la gracia inefable Que se agita en cada trenza suya de negro brillo, O ilumina suavemente su rostro, Donde dulces pensamientos expresan Cuán pura, cuán adorable es su morada. Y en esa mejilla, y sobre esa frente, Son tan suaves, tan tranquilas, y a la vez elocuentes, Las sonrisas que vencen, los matices que iluminan Y hablan de días vividos con felicidad. Una mente en paz con todo, ¡Un corazón con inocente amor! Versión de F. Maristany
