George Gordon Byron

[Lord Byron] (22 January 1788 – 19 April 1824 / London, England)

To M

Oh! did those eyes, instead of fire,
With bright, but mild affection shine:
Though they might kindle less desire,
Love, more than mortal, would be thine.

For thou art form'd so heavenly fair,
Howe'er those orbs may wildly beam,
We must admire, but still despair;
That fatal glance forbids esteem.

[Hata Bildir]
