The Dilettante: A Modern Type Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


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

Paul Laurence Dunbar
