Song

Edgar Allan Poe 1809 (Boston) – 1849 (Baltimore)

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.
