Breeze

Why do you like me she said,
And I couldn’t answer.
I just knew that I wanted
Her to be at my side
For a millennium or two
While I walked down the road.
Wherever life and the breeze
Happened to take me.

The Nameless Grace

I,
I stutter,
Struggling to make the words
That form so beautiful
In my mind
Travel to my lips, and form the sounds
Of rose petals for you
To walk barefoot upon.

And all that’s best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:

She Walks in Beauty

Lord Byron
