I Was Not He (song) Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


I was not he the manA
Who used to pilgrim to your gateB
At whose smart step you grew elateB
And rosed as maidens canA
For a brief spanA
It was not I who sangC
Beside the keys you touched so trueD
With note bent eyes as if with youD
It counted not whence sprangC
The voice that rangC
Yet though my destinyE
It was to miss your early sweetF
You still when turned to you my feetF
Had sweet enough to beE
A prize for meE
