Beginning Of End Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


She was aweary of the hoveringA
Of Love's incessant tumultuous wingA
Her lover's tokens she would answer notB
'Twere well she should be strange with him somewhatC
A pretty babe this Love but fie on itD
That would not suffer her lay it down a whitD
Appointed tryst defiantly she balkedE
And with her lightest comrade lightly walkedE
Who scared the chidden Love to hide apartF
And peep from some unnoticed corner of her heartF
She thought not of her lover deem it notB
There yonder in the hollow that's HIS cotB
But she forgot not that he was forgotB
She saw him at his gate yet stilled her tongueG
So weak she felt her that she would feel strongH
And she must punish him for doing him wrongH
Passed unoblivious of oblivion stillI
And if she turned upon the brow o' the hillI
It was so openly so lightly doneJ
You saw she thought he was not thought uponK
He through the gate went back in bitternessL
She that night woke and stirred with no distressM
Glad of her doing sedulous to be gladN
Lest perhaps her foolish heart suspect that it was sadN
