Edgar Allan Poe

Song

Edgar Allan Poe was an American author, poet, editor, and literary critic, considered part of the American Romantic Movement. Poe is best known for his poetry and short stories, particularly his tales of mystery and the macabre.






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.
