Clair De Lune [english] Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF

Your soul is as a moonlit landscape fairA
Peopled with maskers delicate and dimB
That play on lutes and dance and have an airA
Of being sad in their fantastic trimB
The while they celebrate in minor strainC
Triumphant love effective enterpriseD
They have an air of knowing all is vainC
And through the quiet moonlight their songs riseD
The melancholy moonlight sweet and loneE
That makes to dream the birds upon the treeF
And in their polished basins of white stoneE
The fountains tall to sob with ecstasyF

Paul Verlaine
