Where They Lived Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Dishevelled leaves creep downA
Upon that bank to dayB
Some green some yellow and some pale brownA
The wet bents bob and swayB
The once warm slippery turf is soddenC
Where we laughingly sat or layB
The summerhouse is goneD
Leaving a weedy spaceE
The bushes that veiled it once have grownF
Gaunt trees that interlaceE
Through whose lank limbs I see too clearlyG
The nakedness of the placeE
And where were hills of blueH
Blind drifts of vapour blowI
And the names of former dwellers fewH
If any people knowI
And instead of a voice that called Come in DearsE
Time calls Pass belowI
