The Hope Of The Resurrection Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Though I have watched so many mourners weepA
O'er the real dead in dull earth laid asleepA
Those dead seemed but the shadows of my daysB
That passed and left me in the sun's bright raysB
Now though you go on smiling in the sunC
Our love is slain and love and you were oneC
You are the first you I have known so longD
Whose death was deadly a tremendous wrongD
Therefore I seek the faith that sets it rightE
Amid the lilies and the candle lightE
I think on Heaven for in that air so dearF
We two may meet confused and parted hereG
Ah when man's dearest dies 'tis then he goesH
To that old balm that heals the centuries' woesH
Then Christ's wild cry in all the streets is rifeI
I am the Resurrection and the LifeI
