Chums Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


HUSBAND and wife for fourteen yearsA
And just like children nowB
As fond of one another asC
The day they took their vowB
Where he goes she goes hand in handD
And thus their record sumsE
Through all those years of joy and strifeF
They really have been chumsE
Husband and wife No more than thatG
For husbands oft are knownH
In search of pleasure now and thenI
To journey off aloneH
And wives have clubs and other thingsJ
That interest them moreK
Than business plans their husbands makeL
When honeymooning's o'erM
Not so with them through weal or woeN
Through sunshine and through rainO
Together they have journeyed onP
She cheered when all seemed vainO
His greatest joys have always beenQ
The ones that she could shareR
We knew that when we saw the oneS
The other must be thereR
If I could change the marriage riteT
That binds a pair for lifeF
'T would be to drop that stilted phraseU
'You 're husband now and wife '-
For just one little word I thinkV
The knot far more becomesE
I 'd like to hear the parson sayW
'Beloved now you 're chums '-
