By The Lake Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Across the flat and the pastel snowA
Two people go 'And do you rememberB
When last we wandered this shore ' 'Ah noA
For it is cold hearted December 'C
'Dead the leaves that like asses's ears hung on the treesD
When last we wandered and squandered joy hereE
Now Midas your husband will listen for theseD
Whispers these tears for joy's bier 'C
And as they walk they seem tall pagodasF
And all the ropes let down from the cloudG
Ring the hard cold bell buds upon the trees codasF
Of overtones ecstasies grown for love's shroudG
