When I Too Long Have Looked Upon Your Face Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


When I too long have looked upon your faceA
Wherein for me a brightness unobscuredB
Save by the mists of brightness has its placeA
And terrible beauty not to be enduredB
I turn away reluctant from your lightB
And stand irresolute a mind undoneC
A silly dazzled thing deprived of sightB
From having looked too long upon the sunC
Then is my daily life a narrow roomD
In which a little while uncertainlyE
Surrounded by impenetrable gloomD
Among familiar things grown strange to meE
Making my way I pause and feel and harkF
Till I become accustomed to the darkF
