Marginal Note Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEFE GHI

A ray of light to an oblique observerA
Remains invisible in pure dry airB
But shone into a turbid elementC
It throws distracting side gleams everywhereB
And is diminished by what takes the eyeD
So poetry that moves by chance collisionE
Scatters its brightness at each random moteF
And mars the lucid order of its visionE
The purest meditation will appearG
Faint or invisible to those who glanceH
Obliquely at its unreflected beamI
