Revisiting Byron   Leave a comment

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 ….

George Gordon, Lord Byron, “She Walks In Beauty”

Writing the previous article reminded me of a piece I wrote back in 2013, close to this time of the year, in fact (I published it on August 31).

Wore now a pleasant mystery as he went,
Which seemed to her an honest enough test
Whether she loved him, and she was content.

Morgan in London City

Morgan Vanderzwaan is brand new to Second Life, unlike “Old Hands” like me, or even Jem, who’s been in a few years now.  (And I can never get her to write a rezz-day piece, hint hint!)  She’s gradually starting to build a wardrobe that goes along with her style, which is a little edgier than ours at times, I’ve noticed.  But she still goes for taste and elegance for the most part.  (I think she’s younger than us, but we haven’t traded personal information like that yet.)

One of the women on the “evening shift” at a local House of Scarlet Happiness ….
