A Woman-s Sonnets: Xi Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Wild words I write and lettered in deep painA
To lay in your loved hand as love's farewellB
It is the thought we shall not meet againC
Nerves me to write and my whole secret tellB
For when I speak to you you only jestD
And laughing break the sentence with a kissE
Till my poor love is never quite confessedD
Nor know you half its tears and tendernessF
When the first darkness and the clouds beganG
I hid it from you fearing your reproofH
I would not vex your life's high aim and planG
With my poor woman's woe and held aloofH
But now that all is ended pride and shameI
My tumults and my joys I may proclaimI
