If Only, If Only.

So my friend Allison (super precious, creative blogger extraordinaire) does this thing sometimes where she shares her celebrity crushes. I saw a wonderful and beautifully heart-breaking movie called Bright Star Friday, and it got me thinking of some of the poets I would've loved to love. That in turn inspired me to follow in her footsteps and share one of my celebrity boyfriends. Unfortunately he's a bit dead, but he's so good looking, and talented. He also kind of had a crazy hazy dramatic reputation, but I think he would've been irresistible. I present to you, George Gordon Lord Byron.

And if you're not completely head-over-heels for him yet, here's a breath-taking poem.
"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 mellow'd to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd 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!
