By The Still Water's Edge Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I gazed down from the water's sideA
To see a silver gleamB
And standing staring looked and triedA
To see beyond the streamB
The clearest water sparkling pureC
Below me stilled and calmD
Its cooling soothing fooling lureC
Seductive in its charmE
I saw a young man peering onF
With eyes that conquered allG
But in a moment he was goneH
Uncanny I recallG
Beneath the surface he was thereI
A soul of twenty fourJ
Then vanished in the swell somewhereI
And left me by the shoreJ
Again he came when it was staidK
And braved another glanceL
Had I his acquaintance madeK
Long by go by chanceL
He spoke and told me in a rhymeM
He yearned that he was meN
Though musing swept me back in timeM
I longed that I was heN
