The Suicide's Argument Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: AABB C DCEEDDD

Ere the birth of my life if I wished it or noA
No question was asked me it could not be soA
If the life was the question a thing sent to tryB
And to live on be YES what can NO be to dieB
Is't returned as 'twas sent Is't no worse for the wearD
Think first what you ARE Call to mind what you WEREC
I gave you innocence I gave you hopeE
Gave health and genius and an ample scopeE
Return you me guilt lethargy despairD
Make out the invent'ry inspect compareD
Then die if die you dareD

Samuel Taylor Coleridge
