Where Lies The Truth? Has Man, In Wisdom's Creed Poem Rhyme Scheme and Analysis


Where lies the truth has Man in wisdom's creedA
A pitiable doom for respite briefB
A care more anxious or a heavier griefB
Is he ungrateful and doth little heedA
God's bounty soon forgotten or indeedA
Must Man with labour born awake to sorrowC
When Flowers rejoice and Larks with rival speedA
Spring from their nests to bid the Sun good morrowC
They mount for rapture as their songs proclaimD
Warbled in hearing both of earth and skyE
But o'er the contrast wherefore heave a sighE
Like those aspirants let us soar our aimD
Through life's worst trials whether shocks or snaresF
A happier brighter purer Heaven than theirsF

William Wordsworth
