Picnic Boat Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Sunday night and the park policemen tell each other itA
is dark as a stack of black cats on Lake MichiganB
A big picnic boat comes home to Chicago from the peachC
farms of SaugatuckD
Hundreds of electric bulbs break the night's darkness aE
flock of red and yellow birds with wings at a standstillF
Running along the deck railings are festoons and leapingD
in curves are loops of light from prow and sternG
to the tall smokestacksH
Over the hoarse crunch of waves at my pier comes aE
hoarse answer in the rhythmic oompa of the brassesI
playing a Polish folk song for the home comersJ
