The rhyme scheme is a rhyming couplet following the pattern AABBCCDDD, the final line rhymes with the final couplet. The first hint on a common origin of sex and religion is the form of the poem. It has three stanzas but the rhyme scheme is a rhyming couplet (apart from the last line): three as an uneven number is a divine number representing the Trinity whereas two as an even number is a worldly number mirroring all profane, like Adam and Eve representing mankind. Nevertheless these modifications of the form derive from the same origin, the poem as a whole. The three stanzas of the poem tel.
