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.

A fair and young lady, on that special day
leading her towards a love true and united
did then into a pew, look oe\'r just fleeting, a glance
and see the smile- of a man she knew from a far previous day
Sent her askew -- this meeting not be just chance
but a knowledge shared between only they
and in her misstep and in her fluster
he saw a thing and his mind made another
that was soaring and intense and misguided
A foolish and old man on that on that special day
would lead him to a love unrequited

This is very confusing! I think it is about a man watching a girl get married.

Note how the poems structure is split up into stanzas of four lines. Just like a song. What a clever structure the poet has presented here. We hope to see much more of this in the future as he carries on his creatie journey of literature.

THIS IS AN ANALYSIS:
So at the time i believe Edgar Allan Poe\'s \"High School
sweetheart\" if that\'s what you want to call it, was getting married. He went to the wedding, saw her walk down the aisle and when he saw her blush, he knew that made the groom nervous/ excited which only made him upset (\"Alas\" conveys negative emotion because (actual fact) when he had been dating her, he went away to school and wrote her very often, though her father who did not improve, intercepted the letters and eventually the woman thought Poe had lost interest so she moved on and GOT MARRIED. To which when he found out, (I assume) he write this, as a reaction, or outlet of his feelings toward he getting married, She looks beautiful, love is in the air and in her heart as well as the grooms and yet \"Alas\" he cannot help his sad and frustrated emotions.

To others at the wedding, all is happiness. Yet, the groom sees the blush, the burning in her eyes, and he is alarmed...alas! \"Alas\" is an exclamation of grief, or alarm. He knows something is not right. The writer, though he never states, knows the real meaning of the blush.

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 had to recite this poem in the 7th grade, and i think he wrote it when he was thinking about marrying his 13 year old cousin, Virgina. (But i could totally be wrong about the dates)

This poem is about when a shark came and tried to eat someones finger off but they jumped back in time and then had a great day. So that is why the sun is shining.
