Sonnet: On A Stolen Kiss Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Now gentle sleep hath clos d up those eyesA
Which waking kept my boldest thoughts in aweB
And free access unto that sweet lip liesA
From whence I long the rosy breath to drawC
Methinks no wrong it were if I should stealD
From those two melting rubies one poor kissE
None sees the theft that would the thief revealD
Nor rob I her of aught which she can missE
Nay should I twenty kisses take awayF
There would be little sign I had done soG
Why then should I this robbery delayF
Oh she may wake and therewith angry growG
Well if she do I'll back restore that oneH
And twenty hundred thousand more for loanI
