Question and answer
Determine the rhyme scheme of the following poem. XXV A heavy heart, Beloved, have I borne From year to year until I saw thy face, And sorrow after sorrow took the place Of all those
natural joys as lightly worn As the stringed pearls, each lifted in its turn By a beating heart at dance-time. Hopes apace Were changed to long despairs, till God's own grace Could scarcely lift above the world forlorn My heavy heart. Then thou didst bid me bring And let it drop adown thy calmly great Deep being! Fast it sinketh, as a thing Which its own nature doth precipitate, While thine doth close above it, mediating Betwixt the stars and the unaccomplished fate.
Your version of the rimescheme is possible but Elizabeth probably intended ABBA ABBA CDCDCD. Riming 'turn' with 'worn' is pushing the envelope a little, but forlorn confirms that there are only two rimes intended in the octave. Of course, [ we don't know precisely how Elizabeth pronounced 'turn' - we have a recording of Robert very late in his life - but that may not be a perfect guide. ]
