when we two parted…

 george noel gordon nasceu em londres (1788) e herdou de um tio o título de lord byron. teve uma vida atribulada, muito em função, principalmente, de ter um problema físico em um de seus pés (era manco), de pessoas próximas que dele se aproveitaram e de amores extremados. aqui vai uma pequena demonstração da sua poesia: 

when we two partedbyron
in silence and tears,
half broken-hearted,
to sever for years,
pale grew thy cheek and cold,
colder thy kiss;
truly that hour foretold
sorrow to this.
the dew of the morning
sank chill on my brow –
it felt like the warning
of what I feel now.
thy vows are all broken,
and light is thy fame:
i hear thy name spoken,
and share in its shame.
they name thee before me,
a knell to mine ear;
a shudder comes o’er me –
why wert thou so dear?
they know not I knew thee,
who knew thee too well: –
long, long shall I rue thee
too deeply to tell.
in secret we met –
in silence I grieve
that thy heart could forget,
thy spirit deceive.
if I should meet thee
after long years,
how should I greet thee? –
with silence and tears.

(Lord Byron)
