My Dawg Byron
Posted June 29, 2011 at 05:30 am
I read about a billion classic love poems to find one short & sweet enough to fit into today's comic. I have no idea who Lord Byron is, but then, I probably shouldn't have graduated high school, so that tells you something.

Before anyone asks, here's the full poem!

She Walks in Beauty, by George Gordon 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 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 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!
