A Drinking Song Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABCDCDEEFFEEEGGE HIHIJKJKEEGGEEEAAE

Come brothers share the fellowshipA
We celebrate to nightB
There's grace of song on every lipA
And every heart is lightB
But first before our mentor chimesC
The hour of jubileeD
Let's drink a health to good old timesC
And good times yet to beD
Clink clink clinkE
Merrily let us drinkE
There's store of wealthF
And more of healthF
In every glass we thinkE
Clink clink clinkE
To fellowship we drinkE
And from the bowlG
No genial soulG
In such an hour can shrinkE
-
And you oh friends from west and eastH
And other foreign partsI
Come share the rapture of our feastH
The love of loyal heartsI
And in the wassail that suspendsJ
All matters burthensomeK
We 'll drink a health to good old friendsJ
And good friends yet to comeK
Clink clink clinkE
To fellowship we drinkE
And from the bowlG
No genial soulG
In such an hour will shrinkE
Clink clink clinkE
Merrily let us drinkE
There's fellowshipA
In every sipA
Of friendship's brew we thinkE
