Rhyme Scheme: A B C B D

One evening there came into his soul the desire to fashion an image of The Pleasure that abideth for a Moment And he went forth into the world to look for bronze For he could only think in bronzeA
-
But all the bronze of the whole world had disappeared nor anywhere in the whole world was there any bronze to be found save only the bronze of the image of The Sorrow that endureth for EverB
-
Now this image he had himself and with his own hands fashioned and had set it on the tomb of the one thing he had loved in life On the tomb of the dead thing he had most loved had he set this image of his own fashioning that it might serve as a sign of the love of man that dieth not and a symbol of the sorrow of man that endureth for ever And in the whole world there was no other bronze save the bronze of this imageC
-
And he took the image he had fashioned and set it in a great furnace and gave it to the fireB
-
And out of the bronze of the image of The Sorrow that endureth for Ever he fashioned an image of The Pleasure that abideth for a MomentD
