Veil, Lord, Mine Eyes Till She Be Past Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Veil Lord mine eyes till she be pastA
When Folly tempts my sightB
Keep Thou my palate and my tasteC
From gluttonous delightB
Stop Thou mine ear from sirens songsD
My tongue from lies restrainE
Withhold my hands from doing wrongsD
My feet from courses vainE
Teach likewise ev ry other senseF
To act an honest partG
But chiefly settle innocenceH
And pureness in my heartG
So naught without me or withinI
Shall work an ill effectJ
By tempting me to act a sinI
Or virtues to neglectJ
