Drowning Is Not So Pitiful Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Drowning is not so pitifulB
As the attempt to riseC
Three times 'tis said a sinking manD
Comes up to face the skiesC
And then declines foreverE
To that abhorred abodeF
Where hope and he part companyG
For he is grasped of GodH
The Maker's cordial visageI
However good to seeG
Is shunned we must admit itJ
Like an adversityG
