Does Jonson's "To Celia" have regular rhyme or metre?
It's written in alternating lines of tetrameter and trimeter (that is, a line with four stresses, and a line with three stresses). I've put the scansion below (x is a strong stress, and - is a weak stress).
Drink to me only with thine eyes,
- x - x - x - x
And I will pledge with mine:
- x - x - x
And rhyme wise, you analyse rhyme assigning the same letter to rhyming lines. Like this:
Drink to me only with thine eyes, A
And I will pledge with mine: B
Or leave a kiss but in the cup, C
And I'll not look for wine. B
The thirst that from the soul doth rise A
Doth ask a drink divine B
But might I of Jove's nectar sup, C
I would not change for thine. B
I sent thee late a rosy wreath, D
Not so much honoring thee, E
As giving hope that there F
It could not withered be E
But thou thereto didst only breathe D
And sent it back to me; E
Since when it grows and smells, I swear, F
Not of itself, but thee. E
See how it works? So the recurring rhyme scheme of the poem is ABCB.
