When I Have Fears Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


When I have fears that I may cease to beA
Before my pen has glean'd my teeming brainB
Before high piled books in characteryC
Hold like rich garners the full ripen'd grainB
When I behold upon the night's starr'd faceD
Huge cloudy symbols of a high romanceE
And think that I may never live to traceD
Their shadows with the magic hand of chanceE
And when I feel fair creature of an hourC
That I shall never look upon thee moreC
Never have relish in the faery powerC
Of unreflecting love then on the shoreC
Of the wide world I stand alone and thinkF
Till love and fame to nothingness do sinkF
