To James Whitcomb Riley With Admiration And Regard Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


O lyrist of the lowly and the trueA
The song I sought for youA
Hides yet unsung What hope for me to findB
Lost in the d dal mindB
The living utterance with lovely tongueC
To say as erst was sungC
By Ariosto of Knight errantryA
Through lands of PoesyD
Song's Paladin knight of the dream and dayE
The wizard shield you swayE
Of that Atlantes power sweet and terseD
The skyey builded verseD
The shield that dazzles brilliant with surpriseD
Our unanointed eyesD
Oh had I written as 't were worthy youA
Each line a spark of dewA
As once Ferdusi shone in PersiaF
Had strung each rosy sprayE
Of the unfolding flower of each songG
And Iran's bulbul tongueC
Had sobbed its heart out o'er the fountain's slabH
In gardens of AfrasiabH
