Grand-père Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EAEA FGFG HIHI JGJG

And so when he reached my bedA
The General made a standB
My brave young fellow he saidA
I would shake your handB
-
So I lifted my arm the rightC
With never a hand at allD
Only a stump a sightC
Fit to appalD
-
Well well Now that's too badE
That's sorrowful luck he saidA
But there You give me my ladE
The left insteadA
-
So from under the blanket's rimF
I raised and showed him the otherG
A snag as ugly and grimF
As its ugly brotherG
-
He looked at each jagged wristH
He looked but he did not speakI
And then he bent down and kissedH
Me on either cheekI
-
You wonder now I don't mindJ
I hadn't a hand to offerG
They tell me you know I'm blindJ
'Twas Grand P egrave re JoffreG
