Vesta Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEFE GHIH JKCK LMNM

O Christ of God whose life and deathA
Our own have reconciledB
Most quietly most tenderlyC
Take home thy star named childB
-
Thy grace is in her patient eyesD
Thy words are on her tongueE
The very silence round her seemsF
As if the angels sungE
-
Her smile is as a listening child'sG
Who hears its mother's callH
The lilies of Thy perfect peaceI
About her pillow fallH
-
She leans from out our clinging armsJ
To rest herself in ThineK
Alone to Thee dear Lord can weC
Our well beloved resignK
-
O less for her than for ourselvesL
We bow our heads and prayM
Her setting star like Bethlehem'sN
To Thee shall point the wayM
