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!

Ta oma kauniduses käib
kui selge, tähevalge öö;
öist tumedust, mis hiilgust täis,
ta silmavaatest vastu lööb —
see paiste pehmem, õrnem näib
kui koidukiirte terav vööt. (“Ta oma kauniduses käib”, 1820)
