One Happy Moment Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


No no poor suff'ring Heart no Change endeavourA
Choose to sustain the smart rather than leave herA
My ravish'd eyes behold such charms about herA
I can die with her but not live without herA
One tender Sigh of hers to see me languishB
Will more than pay the price of my past anguishB
Beware O cruel Fair how you smile on meC
'Twas a kind look of yours that has undone meC
Love has in store for me one happy minuteD
And She will end my pain who did begin itE
Then no day void of bliss or pleasure leavingF
Ages shall slide away without perceivingF
Cupid shall guard the door the more to please usG
And keep out Time and Death when they would seize usG
Time and Death shall depart and say in flyingF
Love has found out a way to live by dyingF
