Enemies Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABCC DEDEFF

He stood alone in some queer sunless placeA
Where Armageddon ends Perhaps he longedB
For days he might have lived but his young faceA
Gazed forth untroubled and suddenly there throngedB
Round him the hulking Germans that I shotC
When for his death my brooding rage was hotC
-
He stared at them half wondering and thenD
They told him how I'd killed them for his sakeE
Those patient stupid sullen ghosts of menD
And still there seemed no answer he could makeE
At last he turned and smiled One took his handF
Because his face could make them understandF
