Clocks Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCDE

HERE is a face that says half past seven the same way whether a murder or a wedding goes on whether a funeral or a picnic crowd passesA
A tall one I know at the end of a hallway broods in shadows and is watching booze eat out the insides of the man of the house it has seen five hopes go in five years one woman one child and three dreamsB
A little one carried in a leather box by an actress rides with her to hotels and is under her pillow in a sleeping car between one night standsC
One hoists a phiz over a railroad station it points numbers to people a quarter mile away who believe it when other clocks failD
And of course there are wrist watches over the pulses of airmen eager to go to FranceE
