On The Shop Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AB CD EF GH IJ

He wrapped them carefully neatlyA
in costly green silkB
Roses of ruby lilies of pearlC
violets of amethyst As he himself judgedD
as he wanted them they look beautiful to him not as he sawE
or studied them in nature He will leave them in the safeF
a sample of his daring and skillful craftG
When a buyer enters the shopH
he takes from the cases other wares and sells superb jewelsI
bracelets chains necklaces and ringsJ
