To E.t. Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I slumbered with your poems on my breastA
Spread open as I dropped them half read throughB
Like dove wings on a figure on a tombC
To see if in a dream they brought of youB
I might not have the chance I missed in lifeD
Through some delay and call you to your faceE
First soldier and then poet and then bothF
Who died a soldier poet of your raceE
I meant you meant that nothing should remainG
Unsaid between us brother and this remainedH
And one thing more that was not then to sayI
The Victory for what it lost and gainedH
You went to meet the shell's embrace of fireJ
On Vimy Ridge and when you fell that dayI
The war seemed over more for you than meK
But now for me than you the other wayI
How over though for even me who knewB
The foe thrust back unsafe beyond the RhineL
If I was not to speak of it to youB
And see you pleased once more with words of mineL
