Well Water Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


What a girl called quot the dailiness of life quotA
Adding an errand to your errand SayingB
quot Since you're up quot Making you a means toA
A means to a means to is well waterC
Pumped from an old well at the bottom of the worldA
The pump you pump the water from is rustyA
And hard to move and absurd a squirrel wheelD
A sick squirrel turns slowly through the sunnyA
Inexorable hours And yet sometimesE
The wheel turns of its own weight the rustyA
Pump pumps over your sweating face the clearF
Water cold so cold you cup your handsG
And gulp from them the dailiness of lifeH
