To The Unknown Goddess Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AA BB CC DD EE FF GG HH EE

Will you conquer my heart with your beauty my sould going out from afarA
Shall I fall to your hand as a victim of crafty and cautions shikarA
Have I met you and passed you already unknowing unthinking and blindB
Shall I meet you next session at Simla O sweetest and best of your kindB
Does the P and O bear you to meward or clad in short frocks in the WestC
Are you growing the charms that shall capture and torture the heart in my breastC
Will you stay in the Plains till September my passion as warm as the dayD
Will you bring me to book on the Mountains or where the thermantidotes playD
When the light of your eyes shall make pallid the mean lesser lights I pursueE
And the charm of your presence shall lure me from love of the gay thirteen twoE
When the peg and the pig skin shall please not when I buy me Calcutta build clothesF
When I quit the Delight of Wild Asses foreswearing the swearing of oathsF
As a deer to the hand of the hunter when I turn 'mid the gibes of my friendsG
When the days of my freedom are numbered and the life of the bachelor endsG
Ah Goddess child spinster or widow as of old on Mars Hill whey they raisedH
To the God that they knew not an altar so I a young Pagan have praisedH
The Goddess I know not nor worship yet if half that men tell me be trueE
You will come in the future and therefore these verses are written to youE
