Sonnet 75: Of All The Kings Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB BABA CDC EFG

Of all the kings that ever here did reignA
Edward nam'd Fourth as first in praise I nameB
Not for his fair outside nor well lin'd brainA
Although less gifts imp feathers oft on FameB
-
Nor that he could young wise wise valiant frameB
His sire's revenge join'd with a kingdom's gainA
And gain'd by Mars could yet mad Mars so tameB
That balance weigh'd what sword did late obtainA
-
Nor that he made the Flow'r de luce so 'fraidC
Though strongly hedg'd of bloody Lion's pawsD
That witty Lewis to him a tribute paidC
-
Nor this nor that nor any such small causeE
But only for this worthy knight durst proveF
To lose his crown rather than fail his loveG

Sir Philip Sidney
