The Phoenix Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GHIJ

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
