Memory Of My Father Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Every old man I seeA
Reminds me of my fatherB
When he had fallen in love with deathC
One time when sheaves were gatheredD
That man I saw in Gardner StreetE
Stumbled on the kerb was oneF
He stared at me half eyedG
I might have been his sonF
And I remember the musicianF
Faltering over his fiddleH
In Bayswater LondonF
He too set me the riddleH
Every old man I seeA
In October coloured weatherB
Seems to say to meA
I was once your fatherB
