Lord Byron

1788 - 1824

A Quote by George Gordon, Lord Byron on beauty, bravery, chivalry, love, marriage, men, music, and women

There was a sound of revelry by night, And Belgium's capital had gathered then Her beauty and her chivalry, and bright The lamps shone o'er fair women and brave men. A thousand hearts beat happily; and when Music arose with its voluptuous swell, Soft eyes looked love to eyes which spake again, And all went merry as a marriage bell. But hush! hark! a deep sound strikes like a rising knell!

Of all the horrid, hideous notes of woe, Sadder than owl-songs or the midnight blast, Is that portentous phrase, "I told you so."

The cold, the changed, perchance the dead, anew, The mourn'd, the loved, the lost,-too many, yet how few!
