God's Answer Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Once in a time of trouble and of careA
I dreamed I talked with God about my painB
With sleepland courage daring to complainB
Of what I deemed ungracious and unfairA
'Lord I have grovelled on my knees in prayerA
Hour after hour ' I cried 'yet all in vainB
No hand leads up to heights I would attainB
No path is shown me out of my despair 'C
Then answered God 'Three things I gave to theeD
Clear brain brave will and strength of mind and heartE
All implements divine to shape the wayF
Why shift the burden of thy toil on MeD
Till to the utmost he has done his partE
With all his might let no man DARE to pray '-
