Song Of The Moon Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


The moonlight breaks upon the city's domesA
And falls along cemented steel and stoneB
Upon the grayness of a million homesA
Lugubrious in unchanging monotoneB
Upon the clothes behind the tenementC
That hang like ghosts suspended from the linesD
Linking each flat to each indifferentC
Incongruous and strange the moonlight shinesD
There is no magic from your presence hereE
Ho moon sad moon tuck up your trailing robeF
Whose silver seems antique and so severeG
Against the glow of one electric globeF
Go spill your beauty on the laughing facesH
Of happy flowers that bloom a thousand huesI
Waiting on tiptoe in the wilding spacesH
To drink your wine mixed with sweet drafts of dewsI
