From The 'antigone' Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Overcome O bitter sweetnessA
Inhabitant of the soft cheek of a girlB
The rich man and his affairsC
The fat flocks and the fields' fatnessC
Mariners rough harvestersC
Overcome Gods upon ParnassusC
Overcome the Empyrean hurlB
Heaven and Earth out of their placesC
That in the Same calamityD
Brother and brother friend and friendE
Family and familyD
City and city may contendE
By that great glory driven wildF
Pray I will and sing I mustG
And yet I weep Oedipus' childF
Descends into the loveless dustG

William Butler Yeats
