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 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.

contd ⬇️

TK-421 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
A heart whose love is innocent!

On the last day of June, Donna Trenton came back from downtown Castle Rock (the locals called it “downstreet,” but at least she hadn't picked up that particular Maine-ism yet), where she had dropped Tad off at his afternoon daycamp & picked up a few groceries at the Agway Market.She was hot and tired, & the sight of Steve Kemp's battered Ford Econoline van with the #gaudy desert murals painted on the sides suddenly turned her furious. #QuotsyOct19
