The Somnambulist Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Oaks and a water By the water eyesA
Ice green and steadfast as cold stars and hairB
Yellow as eyes deep in a she wolf's lairB
And limbs like darkness that the lightning dyesA
The humped oaks stand black under iron skiesA
The dry wind whirls the dead leaves everywhereB
Wild on the water falls a vulture glareB
Of moon and wild the circling raven fliesA
Again the power of this thing hath laidC
Illusion on him and he seems to hearD
A sweet voice calling him beyond his gatesE
To longed for love he comes each forest gladeC
Seems reaching out white arms to draw him nearF
Nearer and nearer to the death that waitsE
