Edgar Allan Poe, 1827



    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.
