A little poetic tribute to Lord Byron (part of the coursework for my degree). It is based on "She Walks in Beauty Like the Night". (uni)

 

MAISIE
(a tribute to Lord Byron)
 
She dwells in sweetness like the rose
That hangs upon the perfumed briar,
Whose damask petals do dispose
To set the forest glade afire.
Her lovely features softly pose
The semblance of love’s deep desire.
Those tumbling locks of rose gold hair,
Like sunset doth the sky bedight,
As, beautiful beyond compare,
They gleam in evening’s rosy light
How could they look any more fair
Were Helios now at his height?
And honey-sweet, her rosebud lips
Do light a visage pale and small
As brightly as the autumn hips
Cheer up the hedgerow’s winter pall
She holds love in her fingertips
And does not feel its thorns at all.

I had to go look up the poem again... looks like you're doing fine in your class... still excited for you, though the term exams, I bet, are not all that exciting. :0) Merry Christmas --Charlie
