Sonnet Xv. On The Grasshopper And Cricket Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


The poetry of earth is never deadA
When all the birds are faint with the hot sunB
And hide in cooling trees a voice will runB
From hedge to hedge about the new mown meadC
That is the Grasshopper's he takes the leadA
In summer luxury he has never doneB
With his delights for when tired out with funB
He rests at ease beneath some pleasant weedC
The poetry of earth is ceasing neverD
On a lone winter evening when the frostE
Has wrought a silence from the stove there shrillsF
The Cricket's song in warmth increasing everD
And seems to one in drowsiness half lostE
The Grasshopper's among some grassy hillsF

John Keats
