The Lich Queen “She Walks in Horror”

                 By the Dread Lord Byron

She walks in horror, like the night

Of clouded climes and staring skies;

And all that’s worst of dark and wight

Meet in her aspect and her eye:

Thus harrow’d to that terror’s blight

Which hell to gaudy day defies.

One shade the more, one wraith the less,

Had half impair’d the nameless greed

Which waves in every raven tress,

Or gravely darkens o’er her face;

Where thoughts savagely sweet express

How vile, how dire their swelling-seed.

And on that skull and o’er the brow,

So hard, so black, yet eloquent,

The smiles that rend, the eyes that glow,

But tell of days in godhood spent,

A mind at war o’er all below,

A heart whose hate is malcontent.


“She Walks in Horror” by the Dread Lord Byron is not only a hauntingly beautiful poem, but it has inspired many! We are thrilled to be able to share this historical piece of poetry with our Lich Queen illustration.
