Golgotha Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABCCBDD

Through darkness curves a spume of falling flaresA
That flood the field with shallow blanching lightB
The huddled sentry staresA
On gloom at war with whiteB
And white receding slow submerged in gloomC
Guns into mimic thunder burst and boomC
And mirthless laughter rakes the whistling nightB
The sentry keeps his watch where no one stirsD
But the brown rats the nimble scavengersD

Siegfried Sassoon
