Variation On A Theme By Rilke Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCDEAFGHI

A certain day became a presence to meA
there it was confronting me a sky air lightB
a being And before it started to descendC
from the height of noon it leaned overD
and struck my shoulder as if withE
the flat of a sword granting meA
honor and a task The day's blowF
rang out metallic or it was I a bell awakenedG
and what I heard was my whole selfH
saying and singing what it knew I canI
