The Casual Acquaintance Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABAB CDCD EFEF GHGH BBBB

While he was here in breath and boneA
To speak to and to seeB
Would I had known more clearly knownA
What that man did for meB
-
When the wind scraped a minor layC
And the spent west from whiteD
To gray turned tiredly and from grayC
To broadest bands of nightD
-
But I saw not and he saw notE
What shining life tides flowedF
To me ward from his casual jotE
Of service on that roadF
-
He would have said 'Twas nothing newG
We all do what we canH
'Twas only what one man would doG
For any other manH
-
Now that I gauge his goodlinessB
He's slipped from human eyesB
And when he passed there's none can guessB
Or point out where he liesB
