She, At His Funeral Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABABBCBC

They bear him to his resting placeA
In slow procession sweeping byB
I follow at a stranger s spaceA
His kindred they his sweetheart IB
Unchanged my gown of garish dyeB
Though sable sad is their attireC
But they stand round with griefless eyeB
Whilst my regret consumes like fireC

I adore Hardy's novels, didn't know he had such marvellous poems.
