St. Helena Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I stayed on this famous island for a little whileA
fortress prison and avant garde Bonaparte styleA
Rigged charm with antiquities slow trainB
governors constitution keeping royal patriots vainB
years after the mysterious death of the kingC
at his grave I was wondering You poor little thingC
Another sort of great Alexander that loves to conquerD
taken on the establishments in crisis that ponderD
Ideals of restless doomed heroes celebratedE
taken war to higher constitution elevatedF
St Helena the wife of Emperor ConstantineG
went on to pilgrimage to find the sacred terrainB
Building the church of the Holy SepulchreD
the place of Christ crucifixions cultureD
Priestess of Avalon and patron saint of discoveriesH
island of sacred through Christ self recoveriesH
Total sovereignty and its dying destinyI
luring fatal admirations penaltyI
No escaping from repeating historyI
