The Love Sonnets Of Proteus. Part Iv: Vita Nova: Cx Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


How the earth burns Each pebble underfootB
Is as a living thing with power to woundC
The white sand quivers and the footfall muteD
Of the slow camels strikes but gives no soundC
As though they walked on flame not solid groundC
'Tis noon and the beasts' shadows even have fledE
Back to their feet and there is fire aroundC
And fire beneath and overhead the sunF
Pitiful heaven What is this we viewG
Tall trees a river pools where swallows flyH
Thickets of oleander where doves cooG
Shades deep as midnight greenness for tired eyesI
Hark how the light winds in the palm tops sighH
Oh this is rest Oh this is paradiseJ
