My Lands, Not Thine Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


My lands not thine we look uponA
Friend Croesus hill and vale and lawnB
Mine every woodland madrigalC
And mine thy singing waterfallD
That vaguely hints of HeliconA
Mark how thine upland slopes have drawnB
A golden glory from the dawnB
Fool's gold thy dullness proves them allD
My lands not thineE
For when all title deeds are goneB
Still still will satyr nymph and faunB
Through brake and covert pipe and callD
In dances bold and bacchanalC
For them for me you hold in pawnB
My lands not thineB
