She Walks in Beauty by Lord Byron

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!


Pagi tadi, sebelum matahari benar-benar naik dan memanggang wajah, iseng mencari best romantic poems of all time dan menemukan artikel 10 Best Love Poems di The Telegraph. Dan puisi pertama langsung membuat jatuh cinta.

“She walks in beauty, like the night”

Yang lebih menyenangkannya lagi, puisi ini berjodoh dengan nada yang lagi asik menari-nari di otak saya. Masih kasar, tapi setidaknya ada segumpal emosi yang bisa tersalurkan. Semoga bisa segera diupload ke soundcloud! Uyeaaa~
