skies

A Quote by George Gordon, Lord Byron on love, poem, beauty, night, skies, and starry

             
She walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

Lord Byron (1788 - 1824)

A Quote by George Carlin on america, pollution, mountains plains, seas, and skies

Oh beautiful for smoggy skies, insecticided grain, For strip-mined mountains majesty above the asphalt plain! America, America, man sheds his waste on thee, And hides the pines with billboard signs, from sea to oily sea!

George Carlin
