Satiety Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB BCBC

To yearn for what we have not had to sitA
With hungry eyes glued on the Future's gateB
Why that is heaven compared to having itA
With all the power gone to appreciateB
Better to wait and yearn and still to waitB
And die at last with unappeased desireC
Than live to be the jest of such a fateB
For that is my conception of hell fireC
