A Well-worn Story Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEDE FGFG AHCH IJIJ

In April in AprilA
My one love came alongB
And I ran the slope of my high hillC
To follow a thread of songB
-
His eyes were hard as porphyryD
With looking on cruel landsE
His voice went slipping over meD
Like terrible silver handsE
-
Together we trod the secret laneF
And walked the muttering townG
I wore my heart like a wet red stainF
On the breast of a velvet gownG
-
In April in AprilA
My love went whistling byH
And I stumbled here to my high hillC
Along the way of a lieH
-
Now what should I do in this placeI
But sit and count the chimesJ
And splash cold water on my faceI
And spoil a page with rhymesJ
