Jessie. Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


True hearted was he the sad swain o' the YarrowB
And fair are the maids on the banks o' the AyrC
But by the sweet side o' the Nith's winding riverD
Are lovers as faithful and maidens as fairE
To equal young Jessie seek Scotland all overD
To equal young Jessie you seek it in vainF
Grace beauty and elegance fetter her loverD
And maidenly modesty fixes the chainF
O fresh is the rose in the gay dewy morningG
And sweet is the lily at evening closeH
But in the fair presence o' lovely young JessieI
Unseen is the lily unheeded the roseJ
Love sits in her smile a wizard ensnaringG
Enthron'd in her een he delivers his lawK
And still to her charms she alone is a strangerD
Her modest demeanour's the jewel of a'L
