Bright Star Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Bright star would I were stedfast as thou artA
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the nightB
And watching with eternal lids apartA
Like nature's patient sleepless EremiteA
The moving waters at their priestlike taskC
Of pure ablution round earth's human shoresD
Or gazing on the new soft fallen maskC
Of snow upon the mountains and the moorsE
No yet still stedfast still unchangeableF
Pillow'd upon my fair love's ripening breastA
To feel for ever its soft fall and swellF
Awake for ever in a sweet unrestA
Still still to hear her tender taken breathG
And so live ever or else swoon to deathG

John Keats
