The Vine Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I dream'd this mortal part of mineA
Was Metamorphoz'd to a VineA
Which crawling one and every wayB
Enthrall'd my dainty LuciaC
Me thought her long small legs amp thighsD
I with my Tendrils did surprizeD
Her Belly Buttocks and her WasteE
By my soft Nerv'lits were embrac'dE
About her head I writhing hungF
And with rich clusters hid amongF
The leaves her temples I behungF
So that my Lucia seem'd to meG
Young Bacchus ravished by his treeG
My curles about her neck did crauleH
And armes and hands they did enthrallH
So that she could not freely stirI
All parts there made one prisonerI
But when I crept with leaves to hideJ
Those parts which maids keep unespy'dJ
Such fleeting pleasures there I tookF
That with the fancie I awookF
And found Ah me this flesh of mineA
More like a Stock then like a VineA
