she walks in beauty

Netflix recommended Vanity Fair (2004) to me. Couldn't finish watching it even though Jonathan Rhys Meyers is such eye candy, but the opening theme by Sissel is just hauntingly beautiful. I never cared for the original poem much (sorry Lord Byron), so it was a truly pleasant surprise to hear it as a mesmerizing song.

She Walks in Beauty
by Sissel / Mychael Danna

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.

She walks in beauty, like the night
Of cloudless climes and starry skies.
