Where The Sidewalk Ends Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCCCD EAFFFA FFFA

There is a place where the sidewalk endsA
and before the street beginsB
and there the grass grows soft and whiteC
and there the sun burns crimson brightC
and there the moon bird rests from his flightC
to cool in the peppermint windD
-
Let us leave this place where the smoke blows blackE
and the dark street winds and bendsA
Past the pits where the asphalt flowers growF
we shall walk with a walk that is measured and slowF
and watch where the chalk white arrows goF
to the place where the sidewalk endsA
-
Yes we'll walk with a walk that is measured and slowF
and we'll go where the chalk white arrows goF
for the children they mark and the children they knowF
the place where the sidewalk endsA
