A Friend's Greeting Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


DIAMONDS wouldn't tell yer all I really think of youA
The costliest gift the goldsmith makes I'm sure would never doA
There's nothing known that gold can buy that I could ever sendB
That could explain how glad I am to have yer fer a friendB
If I had all the wealth of earth and what I like could getC
And I should send it on to you I'd still be in your debtC
And still the heart o' me would cry 'That ain't enough t' doA
Fer one whose smiles an' kindly words have meant so much t' you '-
It's Christmas time an' here I am a wishin' all that's goodD
Fer you an' yours A patch o' blue above your neighborhoodD
The bloom o' health forever on the cheeks o' those you loveE
An' future years t' bring the joys that now you're dreamin' ofE
'God bless yer ' That expresses it in simple words an' trueA
It's what the heart o' me would say if it could speak t' youA
May every day be Christmas Day until your journey's endB
Is jus' the simple wish of one who's glad you call him friendB
