Rome Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


O thou newcomer who seek'st Rome in RomeA
And find'st in Rome no thing thou canst call RomanB
Arches worn old and palaces made commonB
Rome's name alone within these walls keeps homeA
Behold how pride and ruin can befallC
One who hath set the whole world neath her lawsD
All conquering now conquered becauseD
She is Time's prey and Time conquereth allC
Rome that art Rome's one sole last monumentE
Rome that alone hast conquered Rome the townF
Tiber alone transient and seaward bentG
Remains of Rome O world thou unconstant mimeH
That which stands firm in thee Time batters downF
And that which fleeteth doth outrun swift TimeH
