Polyhymnia: Sonnet Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


His golden locks time hath to silver turn'dA
O time too swift O swiftness never ceasingB
His youth 'gainst time and age hath ever spurn'dA
But spurn'd in vain youth waneth by increasingB
Beauty strength youth are flowers but fading seenC
Duty faith love are roots and ever greenC
His helmet now shall make a hive for beesD
And lovers' sonnets turn'd to holy psalmsE
A man at arms must now serve on his kneesD
And feed on prayers which are age his almsE
But though from court to cottage he departF
His saint is sure of his unspotted heartF
And when he saddest sits in homely cellG
He'll teach his swains this carol for a songH
quot Blest be the hearts that wish my sovereign wellG
Curst be the souls that think her any wrong quotF
Goddess allow this aged man his rightF
To be your beadsman now that was your knightF
