The New Colossus Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Not like the brazen giant of Greek fameA
With conquering limbs astride from land to landB
Here at our sea washed sunset gates shall standB
A mighty woman with a torch whose flameA
Is the imprisoned lightning and her nameA
Mother of Exiles From her beacon handB
Glows world wide welcome her mild eyes commandB
The air bridged harbor that twin cities frameA
Keep ancient lands your storied pomp cries sheC
With silent lips Give me your tired your poorD
Your huddled masses yearning to be freeC
The wretched refuse of your teeming shoreE
Send these the homeless tempest tost to meC
I lift my lamp beside the golden doorE
Written in aid of the Bartholdi Pedestal FundF
