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.

MARIAM LOPEZ (May 24 2019 10:22AM) : I think he meant that all the beautiful things of both the day and night make up her beauty. There's nice and pretty things in the day like when the sun shines on a cloudless day like what he was describing. Or when the sky is full of stars in the night.- more

-Maybe he used this to describe how her eyes sparkle and glitter like if she has stars in her eyes.

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!

ANAEE MERO (Apr 08 2019 9:10AM) : at the end of every other line, theres a rhyme. more

I believe the author does this to make the poem sound as pretty as the person the speaker is talking to. When poems rhyme I believe they sound smoother and swifter and I think thats the feeling the author wants to give because the speaker talks about the person in a smooth mellow voice probably.

ANAEE MERO (Apr 08 2019 9:22AM) : Punctuation more

The only punctuation he uses repeatedly is a colon, semi colon, comma, and period. commas and semi colons slow down the tempo of the poem and again, the author is going for a softer sort of tone.

ANAEE MERO (Apr 08 2019 9:24AM) : Syllables more

There are 8 syllables per line and i believe that that may be important to the author or speaker.
