Beats of poetry

While I was rereading "Dead Poets Society", I found this O'Shaughnessy's piece of poem (page 56):

We are the music makers,
And we are the dreamers of dreams,
Wandering by lone sea-breakers,
And sitting by desolate streams;
World-losers and world-forsakers,
On whom the pale moon gleams:
Yet we are the movers and shakers
Of the world for ever, it seems.

First of all, I didn't know why I liked it. But then, I realized that it was the rhythm and the rhyme that moves me. For this reason, I've come to conclusion, that this two elements are indispensable for poetry and music. What do you think?
