Still-life Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Through the open French window the warm sunA
Lights up the polished breakfast table laidB
Round a bowl of crimson roses for oneA
A service of Worcester porcelain arrayedB
Near it a melon peaches figs small hotC
Rolls in a napkin fairy rack of toastD
Butter in ice high silver coffee potC
And heaped on a salver the morning's postD
She comes over the lawn the young heiressE
From her early walk in her garden woodF
Feeling that life's a table set to blessG
Her delicate desires with all that's goodF
That even the unopened future liesH
Like a love letter full of sweet surpriseH
