Vixit Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Nurse not your grief nor make obsequious moanA
When I have shed this flesh I love so wellB
Nor slowly toll the dull heart bruising knellB
Nor carve my name in customary stoneA
But let the generous earth reclaim her ownA
And my usurious profit who can tellB
Dash tears aside let joy resume her spellB
Stars glitter where the storm is overblownA
Because I have lived I would not have one sayC
Here long ago a man of such a nameD
Was left to moulder in his pit of clayC
Let only love remember how I cameD
And built an earthen altar in my dayC
And lit thereon a comfortable flameD
