Agassiz Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABBAABBACDECDE

I stand again on the familiar shoreA
And hear the waves of the distracted seaB
Piteously calling and lamenting theeB
And waiting restless at thy cottage doorA
The rocks the sea weed on the ocean floorA
The willows in the meadow and the freeB
Wild winds of the Atlantic welcome meB
Then why shouldst thou be dead and come no moreA
Ah why shouldst thou be dead when common menC
Are busy with their trivial affairsD
Having and holding Why when thou hadst readE
Nature's mysterious manuscript and thenC
Wast ready to reveal the truth it bearsD
Why art thou silent Why shouldst thou be deadE

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
