Unrest Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCE FGFG HIHI JKJK LMLM NONO NDNF

A fierce unrest seethes at the coreA
Of all existing thingsB
It was the eager wish to soarA
That gave the gods their wingsB
-
From what flat wastes of cosmic slimeC
And stung by what quick fireD
Sunward the restless races climbC
Men risen out of mireE
-
There throbs through all the worlds that areF
This heart beat hot and strongG
And shaken systems star by starF
Awake and glow in songG
-
But for the urge of this unrestH
These joyous spheres were muteI
But for the rebel in his breastH
Had man remained a bruteI
-
When baffled lips demanded speechJ
Speech trembled into birthK
One day the lyric word shall reachJ
From earth to laughing earthK
-
When man's dim eyes demanded lightL
The light he sought was bornM
His wish a Titan scaled the heightL
And flung him back the mornM
-
From deed to dream from dream to deedN
From daring hope to hopeO
The restless wish the instant needN
Still lashed him up the slopeO
-
-
-
I sing no governed firmamentN
Cold ordered regularD
I sing the stinging discontentN
That leaps from star to starF
