Magdalen Walks Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


The little white clouds are racing over the skyA
And the fields are strewn with the gold of the flower of MarchB
The daffodil breaks under foot and the tasselled larchB
Sways and swings as the thrush goes hurrying byA
A delicate odour is borne on the wings of the morning breezeC
The odour of deep wet grass and of brown new furrowed earthD
The birds are singing for joy of the Spring's glad birthD
Hopping from branch to branch on the rocking treesC
And all the woods are alive with the murmur and sound of SpringE
And the rose bud breaks into pink on the climbing briarF
And the crocus bed is a quivering moon of fireF
Girdled round with the belt of an amethyst ringE
And the plane to the pine tree is whispering some tale of loveG
Till it rustles with laughter and tosses its mantle of greenH
And the gloom of the wych elm's hollow is lit with the iris sheenH
Of the burnished rainbow throat and the silver breast of a doveG
See the lark starts up from his bed in the meadow thereI
Breaking the gossamer threads and the nets of dewJ
And flashing adown the river a flame of blueJ
The kingfisher flies like an arrow and wounds the airI
