At Midnight Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AAAA AAAA BABA CACA AAAA

At midnight in the trysting woodA
I wandered by the watersideA
When soft as mist before me stoodA
My sweetheart who had diedA
-
But so unchanged was she meseemedA
That I had only dreamed her deadA
Glad in her eyes the love light gleamedA
Her lips were warm and redA
-
What though the stars shone shadowy throughB
Her form as by my side she wentA
And by her feet no dropp of dewB
Was stirred no blade was bentA
-
What though through her white lovelinessC
The wildflower dimmed the moonlight paledA
Real to my touch she was no lessC
Than when the earth prevailedA
-
She took my hand My heart beat wildA
She kissed my mouth I bowed my headA
Then gazing in my eyes she smiledA
'When did'st thou die ' she saidA
