George Gordon Byron

Here you will find the Poem I Saw Thee Weep of poet George Gordon Byron

I Saw Thee Weep

I saw thee weep---the big bright tear
 Came o'er that eye of blue;
And then methought it did appear
 A violet dropping dew:
I saw thee smile---the sapphire's blaze
 Beside thee ceased to shine;
It could not match the living rays
 That filled that glance of thine.
As clouds from yonder sun receive
 A deep and mellow dye,
Which scarce the shade of coming eve
 Can banish from the sky,
Those smiles unto the moodiest mind
 Their own pure joy impart;
Their sunshine leaves a glow behind
 That lightens o'er the heart.
