For broader understanding,
[naijapoets recommend you read:- The Summary and Themes Of The Schoolboy]

The Poem
"I love to rise in a summer morn,
Where the birds sing on every tree;
The distant huntsman winds his horn,
And the skylark sings with me:
O what sweet company!

But to go to school in a summer morn
O it drives all joy way!
Under a cruel eye outworn,
The little one spends the day
In sighing
and dismay.

And then at times I drooping sit..." the poem went on to reach six stanzas of equal lines. Each of the stanza has five lines that look ABABB.
