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.

i am a Literature student in Singapore and I chanced upon Edgar's Song in this website while looking for poems. And I think that this is quite well-written. The setting may be at a wedding ceremony or a wedding reception. Pardon me if I'm making a mistake here. Thanks...
