Windflowers Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


When I was little and goodA
I walked in the dappled woodA
Where light white windflowers grewB
And hyacinths heavy and blueB
The windflowers fluttered lightC
Like butterflies white and brightC
The bluebells tremulous stoodA
Deep in the heart of the woodA
I gathered the white and the blueB
The wild wet woodland throughB
With hands too silly and smallD
To clasp and carry them allD
Some dropped from my hands and diedE
By the home road's grassy sideE
And those that my fond hands pressedF
Died even before the restF
