Second Childhood Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABCDCD EFEFGHGH IJIJKBKB

When I go on my morning walkA
Because I'm mildB
If I be in the mood to talkA
I choose a childB
I'd rather prattle with a lassC
Of tender ageD
Than converse in the high brow classC
With college sageD
-
I love the touch of silken handE
That softly clingsF
In old of age I understandE
Life's little thingsF
I love the lisp of tiny tongueG
And trusting eyesH
These are the joys that keep me youngG
As daylight diesH
-
For as to second childhood II
Draw gently nearJ
With happy heart I see the whyI
Children are dearJ
So wise Professor go your wayK
I am beguiledB
To wistful loving by the gayK
Laugh of a childB
