“She Walks In Beauty” by Lord Byron (read by Tom Hiddleston)


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 the 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!

  4. When I hear him speak I picture a proper Victorian gentleman reading poetry to his lady love, expressing his love for her, as they are not allowed to touch, not yet. His voice evokes a bygone time, a time when poetry was an expression of passion and love. I wonder if he realizes…. #tomhiddleston

    My name is Oliya, I just have started to learn English proporly, so often I listen to different audiobooks and unexpectedly I found Tom Hiddleston reading something here on YouTube in your channel.
