Blogging University Writing 201: Poetry Day 6

Day 6: Faces, Found Poetry, Chiasmus

She walks in beauty, like the night
And all that’s best of dark and bright
A glimmer, and then a gleam of light!
Thus mellowed to that tender light

That was all! And yet, through the gloom and the light,
Softly lightens o’er her face;
But lingers and gazes, till full on his sight
Had half impaired the nameless grace

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
A lover’s embrace dreamy and fey
Lacking nothing, and nothing to lack
