Elegy Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: A BCBC DEDE FGFG

Your dextrous wit will haunt us longB
Wounding our grief with yesterdayC
Your laughter is a broken songB
And death has found you kind and gayC
We may forget those transient thingsD
That made your charm and our delightE
But loyal love has deathless wingsD
That rise and triumph out of nightE
So in the days to come your nameF
Shall be as music that ascendsG
When honour turns a heart from shameF
O heart of hearts O friend of friendsG
