TO — —
I saw thee on thy bridal day —
When a burning blush came o'er thee
Tho' happiness around thee lay,
The world all love before thee: <As
And, in thine eye a kindling light
[Whatever it might be]
Was all on Earth my fetter'd sight
Of Loveliness could see.
That blush, perhaps, was maiden shame —
As such it well may pass —
Tho' its glow hath rais'd 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,
Tho' Happiness around thee lay,
The world all love before thee.
