Lord Byron – She Walks in Beauty (poem with subtitles / captions)


Welcome, everyone. My name is Chris and this is a free lesson on the YouTube channel: Learn British English
Free. I’m sorry I haven’t made many lessons recently
– I’ve been moving to a new flat. That’s why the background is different, but I want to make some more lessons in the
future so please subscribe and keep coming back to
see them. In this lesson, I want to read a poem. It
was sent to me by Silvia on Facebook – the British English
Page. Thank you, Silvia. It’s called: ‘She Walks in Beauty’ by Lord
Byron. There is one word in particular that might
be new. It is ‘gaudy’. Gaudy. Which means, when describing
something visual, very bright – in a negative way. Too bright. Please read with me. You can see captions
or subtitles. ‘She Walks in Beauty’ by Lord Byron. 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! ‘She Walks in Beauty’ by Lord Byron. Read by Chris (that’s me) on Learn British
English Free on YouTube. Thank you, Silvia, on Facebook, for sending
me this. Thank you to everyone for watching. Please contact me for more lessons or private
lessons if you’d like some. Bye. See you next time.
