Sonnet: On The Death Of Prince Henry Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Methought his royal person did foretellA
A kingly stateliness from all pride clearB
His look majestic seem d to compelA
All men to love him rather than to fearB
And yet though he were every good man's joyC
And the alonely comfort of his ownD
His very name with terror did annoyC
His foreign foes so far as he was knownD
Hell drooped for fear the Turkey moon looked paleE
Spain trembled and the most tempestuous seaF
Where Behemoth the Babylonish whaleE
Keeps all his bloody and imperious pleaF
Was swoln with rage for fear he'd stop the tideG
Of her o'er daring and insulting prideG
