I Died For Beauty Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEFG HIJK

I died for beauty but was scarceA
Adjusted in the tombB
When one who died for truth was lainC
In an adjoining roomB
He questioned softly why I failedD
For beauty I repliedE
And I for truth the two are oneF
We brethren are he saidG
And so as kinsmen met a nightH
We talked between the roomsI
Until the moss had reached our lipsJ
And covered up our namesK
