Had I A Cave. Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: A BBCCDB AAEF A

Tune Robin AdairA
Had I a cave on some wild distant shoreB
Where the winds howl to the waves' dashing roarB
There would I weep my woesC
There seek my lost reposeC
Till grief my eyes should closeD
Ne'er to wake moreB
Falsest of womankind canst thou declareA
All thy fond plighted vows fleeting as airA
To thy new lover hieE
Laugh o'er thy perjuryF
Then in thy bosom try-
What peace is thereA

Robert Burns
