Grace and Beauty


Her beauty walks before her
Night and day blend together
In cloudless skies and starry nights
Her eyes warm the earth and
Mellow human hearts.

Rays of the sun glow in her wake
As she walks with grace and beauty
Making her hair sparkle and shine
With each step and lightens her face
With an iridescent glow.

Her smile warms everybody she meets
With such softness and eloquent grace
Yet with the innocence of youth
She puts men’s hearts at peace
With her inner calm and kind heart.

    A wonderful piece of poetry. Soft and smooth, enlightening and eloquent.
    My favourite duplets:
    'Her eyes warm the earth and
    Mellow human hearts.' And,
    'She puts men’s hearts at peace
    With her inner calm and kind heart.'
    Grace and beauty blend together to make elegance. (Report) Reply

    Even before I read your note at the bottom I got the feeling of 'She Walks in Beauty'. You caught the moment and explained so simply and cleanly. Eyes warm, inner calm, putting men's heats at peace. Beautiful poem as tribute to Byron. Thank you. (Report) Reply
