A Wet August Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABCB BDED BFBF

Nine drops of water bead the jessamineA
And nine and ninety smear the stones and tilesB
'Twas not so in that August full rayed fineC
When we lived out of doors sang songs strode milesB
Or was there then no noted radiancyB
Of summer Were dun clouds a dribbling boughD
Gilt over by the light I bore in meE
And was the waste world just the same as nowD
It can have been so yea that threateningsB
Of coming down drip on the sunless grayF
By the then possibilities in thingsB
Were wrought more bright than brightest skies to dayF
