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

Rhyme Scheme: ABBAA CDDCC EFFEE

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
