Response Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AABB AACD EEFF

When Phyllis sighs and from her eyesA
The light dies out my soul repliesA
With misery of deep drawn breathB
E'en as it were at war with deathB
When Phyllis smiles her glance beguilesA
My heart through love lit woodland aislesA
And through the silence high and clearC
A wooing warbler's song I hearD
But if she frown despair comes downE
I put me on my sack cloth gownE
So frown not Phyllis lest I dieF
But look on me with smile or sighF

Paul Laurence Dunbar
