The Garden Of Shadow Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAC DEDE FEFE

Love heeds no more the sighing of the windA
Against the perfect flowers thy garden's closeB
Is grown a wilderness where none shall findA
One strayed last petal of one last year's roseC
O bright bright hair O mouth like a ripe fruitD
Can famine be so nigh to harvestingE
Love that was songful with a broken luteD
In grass of graveyards goeth murmuringE
Let the wind blow against the perfect flowersF
And all thy garden change and glow with springE
Love is grown blind with no more count of hoursF
Nor part in seed time nor in harvestingE
