On A Tree Fallen Across The Road Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


To hear us talkA
The tree the tempest with a crash of woodB
Throws down in front of us is not barC
Our passage to our journey's end for goodB
But just to ask us who we think we areC
Insisting always on our own way soD
She likes to halt us in our runner tracksE
And make us get down in a foot of snowD
Debating what to do without an axE
And yet she knows obstruction is in vainF
We will not be put off the final goalG
We have it hidden in us to attainF
Not though we have to seize earth by the poleG
And tired of aimless circling in one placeH
Steer straight off after something into spaceH
