The Head Above The Fog Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis

Rhyme Scheme: ABBBA CDEDC FGGGH ABBBA

Something do I seeA
Above the fog that sheets the meadB
A figure like to life indeedB
Moving along with spectre speedB
Seen by none but meA
-
O the vision keenC
Tripping along to me for loveD
As in the flesh it used to moveE
Only its hat and plume aboveD
The evening fog fleece seenC
-
In the day fall wanF
When nighted birds break off their songG
Mere ghostly head it skims alongG
Just as it did when warm and strongG
Body seeming goneH
-
Such it is I seeA
Above the fog that sheets the meadB
Yea that which once could breathe and pleadB
Skimming along with spectre speedB
To a last tryst with meA
