Five Criticisms - Ii Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: A BCBC DBDB EFGH EFIH

On a certain goddess acclaimed as new but known in BabylonA
-
I saw the assembled artists of our dayB
Waiting for light for music and for songC
A woman stood before them fresh as MayB
And beautiful but in that modish throngC
-
None heeded her They said In our first youthD
Surely long since your hair was touched with greyB
I do not change she answered I am TruthD
Old and banal they sneered and turned awayB
-
Then came a formless thing with breasts dyed scarletE
The roses in her hair were green and blueF
I am new she said I change andG
Death knows whyH
-
Then with the eyes and gesture of a harlotE
She led them all forth whinneying New how newF
Tell us your name She answered TheI
New LieH
