Elizabeth Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Elizabeth it surely is most fitA
Logic and common usage so commandingB
In thy own book that first thy name be writA
Zeno and other sages notwithstandingB
And I have other reasons for so doingB
Besides my innate love of contradictionC
Each poet if a poet in pursuingB
The muses thro' their bowers of Truth or FictionC
Has studied very little of his partD
Read nothing written less in short's a foolE
Endued with neither soul nor sense nor artD
Being ignorant of one important ruleE
Employed in even the theses of the schoolE
Called I forget the heathenish Greek nameF
Called anything its meaning is the sameF
Always write first things uppermost in the heartD
