Lord Byron – She Walks in Beauty (poem with subtitles / captions)
SHE WALKS IN BEAUTY by Lord Byron (for Silvia on Facebook)
New word: ‘gaudy’ (adjective)
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!

+ add / plus – minus / take away x times ÷ divided by = equals / is 2 + 16 = 18 (two add sixteen equals eighteen) 12 + 28 = 40 (twelve plus twenty-eight is forty) 13 – 6 = 7 (thirteen minus six equals seven) 77 – 33 = 44 (seventy-seven take away thirty-three is forty-four) 3 x 7 = 21 (three times seven equals twenty-one) 8 x 10 = 80 (eight times ten is eighty) 36 ÷ 12 = 3 (thirty-six divided by twelve equals three)
