Hello Reader

This is is not my own composition. It is a beautiful poem by Lord Byron and it has a tiny mention of hair.....enjoy!!

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!

Ooooooooo! I like that one! I`m gonna try to write my own.....

If I had wings then I could take you in
I'd stay on the ground and show you some things
The grass is strewn with blades of gold
all sights and sounds I have been told
all hopes, desires, seem to sing
