Venus In A Garden Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


'Twas at early morningA
The dawn was blushing in her purple bedB
When in a sweet embowered gardenC
She the fairest of the goddessesD
The lovely VenusE
Roamed amongst the roses white and redB
She sought for flowersF
To make a garlandG
For her golden headB
Snow white roses blood red rosesD
In that sweet garden closeH
Offered incense to the goddessE
Both the white and the crimson roseI
White roses red roses blossomingA
But the fair Venus knewJ
The crimson roses had gained their hueJ
From the hearts that for love had bledB
And the goddess made a garlandG
Gathered from the roses redB
