With One Firm Thrust Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF

With one firm thrust to force the boat of livingA
From off the sands and by a wave tossed highB
Be toward a new life borne a new beginningA
To feel the wind from scented shores sweep nighB
To wake from torpid sleep a mind turned sluggishC
To revel in the strange and the unknownD
To lend fresh breath to life and joy to anguishC
To make another's cares and griefs your ownD
To speak of things it numbs the tongue to utterE
To fire the timid heart that fierce 'tmay poundF
This can the chosen songsmith do no otherE
And 'tis for this that he is known and crownedF
