Hateful Is The Dark-blue Sky Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Hateful is the dark blue skyA
Vaulted o'er the dark blue seaB
Death is the end of life ah whyA
Should life all labor beB
Let us alone Time driveth onward fastC
And in a little while our lips are dumbD
Let us alone What is it that will lastC
And things are taken from us and becomeD
Portions and parcels of the dreadful pastC
Let us alone What pleasure can we haveE
To war with evil Is there any peaceF
In ever climbing up the climbing waveG
All things have rest and ripen toward the graveG
In silence ripen fall and ceaseF
Give us long rest or death dark death or dreamful easeH

Alfred Lord Tennyson
