Going For Water Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


The well was dry beside the doorA
And so we went with pail and canB
Across the fields behind the houseC
To seek the brook if still it ranB
Not loth to have excuse to goD
Because the autumn eve was fairE
Though chill because the fields were oursF
And by the brook our woods were thereE
We ran as if to meet the moonG
That slowly dawned behind the treesH
The barren boughs without the leavesI
Without the birds without the breezeH
But once within the wood we pausedJ
Like gnomes that hid us from the moonG
Ready to run to hiding newK
With laughter when she found us soonG
Each laid on other a staying handL
To listen ere we dared to lookM
And in the hush we joined to makeN
We heard we knew we heard the brookM
A note as from a single placeO
A slender tinkling fall that madeP
Now drops that floated on the poolQ
Like pearls and now a silver bladeP
