On The Castle Of Chillon Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Eternal Spirit of the chainless MindA
Brightest in dungeons Liberty thou artB
For there thy habitation is the heartB
The heart which love of thee alone can bindA
And when thy sons to fetters are consignedA
To fetters and the damp vault's dayless gloomC
Their country conquers with their martyrdomD
And Freedom's fame finds wings on every windA
Chillon thy prison is a holy placeE
And thy sad floor and altar for 'twas trodF
Until his very steps have left a traceE
Worn as if thy cold pavement were a sodF
By Bonnivard May none those marks effaceE
For they appeal from tyranny to GodF

George Gordon Byron
