In the poem “She Walks in Beauty” by George Gordon, Lord Byron, it compares this lady’s beauty and love to nature and the heavens above. In stanza one, lines 1 through 6 he compares his true love’s perfect beauty to day and night. He thinks that it is better to see her beauty at night time, because it is more romantic to see her face in the moonlight and represents how the moonlight would give her a glowing eloquent radiance. I believe he means that he would rather see her at night, because that is when the best of her is shown, instead of in the day time when all the imperfections are noticeable. The poem quotes in stanza one lines one and two "She walks in beauty, like the night; Of cloudless climes anf starry skies (pg. 808 stanza lines 1 and 2). Also to support my argument in stanza lines five and six, the poem quotes "Thus mellowed to that tender light; Which heaven to gaudy day denies" (pg. 808 stanza lines 5 and 6). When he looks into her face, with her pale skin and dark hair, he sees only pure thoughts that reflects in her peaceful mind. In stanza two lines eleven and twelve he quotes "Where thoughts serenely sweet express; How pure, how dear their dwelling place" (pg. 808 stanza lines 11 and 12).
