Rhyme Scheme: A BCDE FGHG IJKL

The lonesome for they know not WhatB
The Eastern Exiles beC
Who strayed beyond the Amber lineD
Some madder HolidayE
And ever since the purple MoatF
They strive to climb in vainG
As Birds that tumble from the cloudsH
Do fumble at the strainG
The Blessed Ether taught themI
Some Transatlantic MornJ
When Heaven was too common to missK
Too sure to dote uponL
