Sonnet Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Methinks ofttimes my heart is like some beeA
That goes forth through the summer day and singsB
And gathers honey from all growing thingsB
In garden plot or on the clover leaA
When the long afternoon grows late and sheA
Would seek her hive she cannot lift her wingsB
So heavily the too sweet burden clingsB
From which she would not and yet would fly freeA
So with my full fond heart for when it triesC
To lift itself to peace crowned heights aboveD
The common way where countless feet have trodE
Lo then this burden of dear human tiesC
This growing weight of precious earthly loveD
Binds down the spirit that would soar to GodE
