To The God Of Fond Desire Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAC DEDE FGF

One day the God of fond desireA
On mischief bent to Damon saidB
'Why not disclose your tender fireA
Now own it to the lovely maid 'C
The shepherd marked his treacherous artD
And softly sighing thus repliedE
''Tis true you have subdued my heartD
But shall not triumph o'er my prideE
'The slave in private only bearsF
Your bondage who his love concealsG
But when his passion he declaresF
You drag him at your chariot wheels '-
