Lament Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Listen childrenA
Your father is deadB
From his old coatsC
I'll make you little jacketsD
I'll make you little trousersE
From his old pantsF
There'll be in his pocketsG
Things he used to put thereH
Keys and penniesI
Covered with tobaccoJ
Dan shall have the penniesI
To save in his bankK
Anne shall have the keysI
To make a pretty noise withL
Life must go onM
And the dead be forgottenA
Life must go onM
Though good men dieN
Anne eat your breakfastO
Dan take your medicineA
Life must go onM
I forget just whyN
