The Phoenix Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


A Female Friend advis'd a SwainA
Whose Heart she wish'd at easeB
Make Love thy Pleasure not thy PainA
Nor let it deeply seizeB
Beauty where Vanities aboundC
No serious Passion claimsD
Then 'till a Phoenix can be foundC
Do not admit the FlamesD
But griev'd She finds that his RepliesE
Since prepossess'd when YoungF
Take all their Hints from Silvia's EyesE
None from ARDELIA's TongueF
Thus Cupid of our Aim we missG
Who wou'd unbend thy BowH
And each slight Nymph a Phoenix isI
When Love will have it soJ
