The Lightning Playeth'all The While Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: A BCDE FGHG IGJG

The Lightning playeth all the whileB
But when He singeth thenC
Ourselves are conscious He existD
And we approach Him sternE
With Insulators and a GloveF
Whose short sepulchral BassG
Alarms us tho' His Yellow feetH
May pass and counterpassG
Upon the Ropes above our HeadI
Continual with the NewsG
Nor We so much as check our speechJ
Nor stop to cross OurselvesG
