Jade Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AABBCDCEBF

THE patient craftsman of the East who madeA
His undulant dragons of the veined jadeA
And wound their sinuous volutes round the wholeB
Pellucid green redundance of the bowlB
Chiseled his subtle traceries with the sameC
Keen stone he wrought them inD
Nor praise nor blameC
Nor gifts the years relinquish or refuseE
But only a grief commensurate with thy soulB
Shall carve it in a shape for gods to useF

Edith Wharton
