The Foregoing Subject Resumed Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Among a grave fraternity of MonksA
For One but surely not for One aloneB
Triumphs in that great work the Painter's skillC
Humbling the body to exalt the soulD
Yet representing amid wreck and wrongE
And dissolution and decay the warmF
And breathing life of flesh as if alreadyG
Clothed with impassive majesty and gracedH
With no mean earnest of a heritageI
Assigned to it in future worlds Thou tooJ
With thy memorial flower meek PortraitureK
From whose serene companionship I passedL
Pursued by thoughts that haunt me still thou alsoM
Though but a simple object into lightN
Called forth by those affections that endearK
The private hearth though keeping thy sole seatO
In singleness and little tried by timeP
Creation as it were of yesterdayQ
With a congenial function art enduedR
For each and all of us together joinedS
In course of nature under a low roofT
By charities and duties that proceedU
Out of the bosom of a wiser vowV
To a like salutary sense of aweW
Or sacred wonder growing with the powerK
Of meditation that attempts to weighQ
In faithful scales things and their oppositesX
Can thy enduring quiet gently raiseY
A household small and sensitive whose loveZ
Dependent as in part its blessings areK
Upon frail ties dissolving or dissolvedA2
On earth will be revived we trust in heavenB2
