The Dilettante: A Modern Type Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB DEDE FGFG HIHI

He scribbles some in prose and verseA
And now and then he prints itB
He paints a little gathers someC
Of Nature's gold and mints itB
-
He plays a little sings a songD
Acts tragic roles or funnyE
He does because his love is strongD
But not oh not for moneyE
-
He studies almost everythingF
From social art to scienceG
A thirsty mind a flowing springF
Demand and swift complianceG
-
He looms above the sordid crowdH
At least through friendly lensesI
While his mamma looks pleased and proudH
And kindly pays expensesI
