5688 George Gordon Noel Byron

AUTHOR:George Gordon Noel Byron, Lord Byron (1788–1824)
QUOTATION:She was a form of life and light
That seen, became a part of sight,
And rose, where’er I turn’d mine eye,
The morning-star of memory!
Yes, love indeed is light from heaven;
  A spark of that immortal fire
With angels shared, by Alla given,
  To lift from earth our low desire.
