Sweet Peas Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAAB CDCCD DEDDE FGFFG HIHHI JKJJL

By helpful fingers taught to twineA
Around its trellis grewB
A delicate and dainty vineA
The bursting bud its blossom signA
Inlaid with honeyed dewB
-
Developing by every artC
To floriculture knownD
From tares exempt and kept apartC
Careful as if in some fond heartC
Its legume germs were sownD
-
So thriving not for me aloneD
Its beauty and perfumeE
Ah no to rich perfection grownD
By flower mission loved and knownD
In many a darkened roomE
-
And once in strange and solemn placeF
Mid weeping uncontrolledG
Upon the crushed and snowy laceF
I saw them scattered 'round a faceF
All pallid still and coldG
-
Oh some may choose as gaudy showsH
Those saucy sprigs of prideI
The peony the red red roseH
But give to me the flower that growsH
Petite and pansy eyedI
-
Thus meditation on Sweet PeasJ
Impels the ardent thoughtK
Would maidens all were more like theseJ
With modesty that true heartseaseJ
Tying the lover's knotL
