Poem by Edgar Allan Poe


Song


I saw thee on thy bridal day
      When a burning blush came o'er thee,
Though happiness around thee lay,
      The world all love before thee:

And in thine eye a kindling light
      (Whatever it might be)
Was all on Earth my aching sight
      Of Loveliness could see.

That blush, perhaps, was maiden shame
      As such it well may pass
Though its glow hath raised a fiercer flame
      In the breast of him, alas!

Who saw thee on that bridal day,
      When that deep blush would come o'er thee,
Though happiness around thee lay;
      The world all love before thee.

1827
