She Walks in Beauty

She Walks in Beauty

by George Gordon, Lord Byron

Analysis: Tough-O-Meter

(4) Base Camp

This is a pretty accessible poem, even for beginning readers of poetry. The trickiest thing about it is the syntax: the structure of the sentences doesn't always match up with the structure of the lines, which can throw readers off if they aren't careful. There are also some tough vocabulary words. But it's a short poem, and it talks about something we're all familiar with (beauty). So even if you find the syntax a bit tricky, hopefully this means you still have some firm ground to keep your footing as you climb.
