Lovers through the centuries........volume one

Did you ever wish you could time travel? Is there anyone in recent or not-so-recent history that you would love to meet and make love with? I do.........

Of course we can't really know what these people are like.......in many cases they were probably jerks who get good press. But this is fantasy, so no matter.

*******
That is my problem, often.........I start worrying about details in my fantasy life.......
*******

Anyway.........I thought it might be fun to post about these men who make me swoon......

So today I will start with Lord Byron

"mad, bad, and dangerous to know......."

Some info from answers dot com

British poet acclaimed as one of the leading figures of the romantic movement. The “Byronic hero”–lonely, rebellious, and brooding–first appeared in Manfred (1817). Among his other works are Childe Harold (1812‒181, The Prisoner of Chillon (1816), and the epic satire Don Juan (1819‒1824). Byron was notorious for his love affairs and unconventional lifestyle. He died while working to secure Greek independence from the Turks

Lord Byron cut a sexual swath that still astonishes by its sheer brazenness and multiplicity - he once bragged that he had sex with 250 women in Venice over the course of a single year. He was all-inclusive - boys, siblings, women of all classes. Ultimately he was to live abroad to escape the censure of British society, where men could be forgiven for sexual misbehavior only up to a point, one which Byron far surpassed.

Lord Byron, by all accounts, had a particularly magnetic personality ‒ one may say astonishingly so. He obtained a reputation as being unconventional, eccentric, flamboyant and controversial. Many attribute some of Byron's extraordinary abilities to his affliction with bipolar disorder, commonly known as manic depression. Byron had a great fondness for animals, most famously for a Newfoundland dog named Boatswain; when Boatswain contracted rabies, Byron reportedly nursed him without any fear of becoming bitten and infected. Boatswain lies buried at Newstead Abbey and has a monument larger than his master's. The inscription, Byron's "Epitaph to a dog", has become one of his best-known works.

Deeply romantic poet, bad boy, yet kind to animals. Yeah.......he'd be worth the trip.

She walks in beauty

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 mellowed to that tender light
Which heaven to gaudy day denies.

One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
Or softly lightens over her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek, and over that brow,
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent!

I love She Walks in Beauty...fabulous...one of my all time favorites.

Though, if we're going back in time, I'll take Elizabeth Taylor in her prime. She was stunning!
