Nature, The Gentlest Mother, Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABBB CBDB EFGH IJBA KLMN EJOJ

Nature the gentlest motherA
Impatient of no childB
The feeblest or the waywardestB
Her admonition mildB
-
In forest and the hillC
By traveller is heardB
Restraining rampant squirrelD
Or too impetuous birdB
-
How fair her conversationE
A summer afternoonF
Her household her assemblyG
And when the sun goes downH
-
Her voice among the aislesI
Incites the timid prayerJ
Of the minutest cricketB
The most unworthy flowerA
-
When all the children sleepK
She turns as long awayL
As will suffice to light her lampsM
Then bending from the skyN
-
With infinite affectionE
And infiniter careJ
Her golden finger on her lipO
Wills silence everywhereJ
