Consists of three quatrains and one couplet Generally follows the rhyme scheme ABAB BCBC CDCD EE Lets Practice!! - Not in a Silver Casket Not in a silver casket cool with pearls Or rich with red corundum or with blue, Locked, and the key withheld, as other girls Have given their loves, I give my love to you; 5 Not in a lovers-knot, not in a ring

Worked in such fashion, and the legend plain Semper fidelis, where a secret spring Kennels a drop of mischief for the brain: Love in the open hand, no thing but that, 10 Ungemmed, unhidden, wishing not to hurt, As one should bring you cowslips in a hat Swung from the hand, or apples in her skirt. I bring you, calling out as children do: Look what I have! And these are all for you.
