~ She Walks In Beauty ~


~ 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! 
~ Lord Byron ~

As I was Working on this Collage Piece,
~ She Walks in Beauty  ~
 (One of my Favorite Poems)
kept Popping into my Head.
It Just Seemed to Fit.
My Love of the 
Regency- Jane Austen Time Period
 also Played a Role I think.
It is My Go Too Theme for Creative Play !
I Hope you Don't Mind too Much!

Dear Jill,
it is a beautiful creation, so very lovely with the Regency woman in her garden of the time, and the wonderful flowers , such a poetic piece.
She is the sugar on the cake to Mr. Byrons poem.
