To Garibaldi'with A Book Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


When at Philippi he who would have freedA
Great Rome from tyrants for the season briefB
That lay 'twixt him and battle sought reliefB
From painful thoughts he in a book did readC
That so the death of Portia might not breedA
Unmanful thoughts and cloud his mind with griefB
Brother of Brutus of high hearts the chiefB
When thou at length receiv'st thy heavenly meedA
And I have found my hoping not in vainD
Tell me my book has wiled away one pangE
That out of some lone sacred memory sprangE
Or wrought an hour's forgetfulness of painD
And I shall rise my heart brimful of gainD
And thank my God amid the golden clangE
