J. D. R. Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEDE FGFG

THE friends that are and friends that wereA
What shallow waves divideB
I miss the form for many a yearC
Still seated at my sideB
I miss him yet I feel him stillD
Amidst our faithful bandE
As if not death itself could chillD
The warmth of friendship's handE
His story other lips may tellF
For me the veil is drawnG
I only knew he loved me wellF
He loved me and is goneG
