Old Christmas Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEFE GHIH CHJH AKLK

Now he who knows old ChristmasA
He knows a carle of worthB
For he is as good a fellowC
As any upon earthB
-
He comes warm cloaked and coatedD
And buttoned up to the chinE
And soon as he comes a nigh the doorF
We open and let him inE
-
And with sprigs of holly and ivyG
We make the house look gayH
Just out of an old regard for himI
For it was his ancient wayH
-
He must be a rich old fellowC
What money he gives awayH
There is not a lord in EnglandJ
Could equal him any dayH
-
Good luck unto old ChristmasA
And long life let us singK
For he doth more good unto the poorL
Than many a crowned kingK
