The Collar-bone Of A Hare Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Would I could cast a sad on the waterA
Where many a king has goneB
And many a king's daughterA
And alight at the comely trees and the lawnB
The playing upon pipes and the dancingC
And learn that the best thing isD
To change my loves while dancingC
And pay but a kiss for a kissE
I would find by the edge of that waterA
The collar bone of a hareF
Worn thin by the lapping of waterA
And pierce it through with a gimlet and stareF
At the old bitter world where they marry in churchesG
And laugh over the untroubled waterA
At all who marry in churchesG
Through the white thin bone of a hareF
