Summer And Winter Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


It was a bright and cheerful afternoonA
Towards the end of the sunny month of JuneA
When the north wind congregates in crowdsB
The floating mountains of the silver cloudsB
From the horizon and the stainless skyC
Opens beyond them like eternityD
All things rejoiced beneath the sun the weedsE
The river and the corn fields and the reedsE
The willow leaves that glanced in the light breezeF
And the firm foliage of the larger treesF
It was a winter such as when birds dieC
In the deep forests and the fishes lieC
Stiffened in the translucent ice which makesG
Even the mud and slime of the warm lakesG
A wrinkled clod as hard as brick and whenH
Among their children comfortable menH
Gather about great fires and yet feel coldI
Alas then for the homeless beggar oldI
