Snake Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCDE FGH IJI K

I saw a young snake glideA
Out of the mottled shadeB
And hang limp on a stoneC
A thin mouth and a tongueD
Stayed in the still airE
-
It turned it drew awayF
Its shadow bent in halfG
It quickened and was goneH
-
I felt my slow blood warmI
I longed to be that thingJ
The pure sensuous formI
-
And I may be some timeK
