Bridal Ballad - Poem by Edgar Allan Poe

The ring is on my hand,
And the wreath is on my brow;
Satin and jewels grand
Are all at my command,
And I am happy now.

And my lord he loves me well;
But, when first he breathed his vow,
I felt my bosom swell-
For the words rang as a knell,
And the voice seemed his who fell
In the battle down the dell,
And who is happy now.

But he spoke to re-assure me,
And he kissed my pallid brow,
While a reverie came o'er me,
And to the church-yard bore me,
And I sighed to him before me,
Thinking him dead D'Elormie,
"Oh, I am happy now!"

And thus the words were spoken,
And this the plighted vow,
And, though my faith be broken,
And, though my heart be broken,
Here is a ring, as token
That I am happy now!

Would God I could awaken!
For I dream I know not how!
And my soul is sorely shaken
Lest an evil step be taken,-
Lest the dead who is forsaken
May not be happy now.

    This man of poetry and story was very much under rated in his lifetime. He was recognized thereafter as a true master of word and feeling. (Report) Reply

    It is sad when one's true love dies. It is sadder when the surviving lover cannot move on because of that loss. It is saddest if upon trying to move on the memory of the departed mars what graces might be shared with the present new. Thanks for posting...enjoyed. (Report) Reply
