Dust-sealed Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I know not wherefore but mine eyesA
See bloom where other eyes see blightB
They find a rainbow a sunriseA
Where others but discern deep nightB
Men call me an enthusiastC
And say I look through gilded hazeD
Because where'er my gaze is castC
I see something that calls for praiseD
I say Behold those lovely eyesA
That tinted cheek of flower like graceE
They answer in amused surpriseA
We thought it a common faceE
I say Was ever seen more fairF
I seem to walk in Eden's bowersG
They answer with a pitying airF
The weeds are choking out the flowersG
I know not wherefore but God lentH
A deeper vision to my sightB
On whatsoe'er my gaze is bentH
I catch the beauty InfiniteI
That underlying hidden halfJ
That all things hold of DeityK
So let the dull crowd sneer and laughJ
Their eyes are blind they cannot seeK
