There's no success like failure, 
And failure is no success at all.

FYI: Dylan is a mathematician as he is stating necessary and sufficient conditions that can also be applied to doing proofs on number sets associated with partial deriviatives and bordered Hessian matrices.     
Coooool.

For a  lot of fans, that was a huge sell-out at the Newport Folk Festival in July '65. There's a myth that Pete Seeger was enraged by Dylan going electric but Seeger said in at least one interview that he was only pissed that the sound was so bad during Bob's performance. He had no problem with Dylan's choice and noted that Howlin' Wolf did the same thing the day before Dylan. 

The whole ancient issue looks pretty pointless and silly these days.

More importantly why do songs need to fit a formula?  Screw the bridge - if he don't want one he don't have to have one.

My love she speaks like silence,
Without ideals or violence,
She doesn't have to say she's faithful,
Yet she's true, like ice, like fire.
People carry roses,
Make promises by the hours,
My love she laughs like the flowers,
Valentines can't buy her.

In the dime stores and bus stations,

People talk of situations,
Read books, repeat quotations,
Draw conclusions on the wall.
Some speak of the future,
My love she speaks softly,
She knows there's no success like failure
And that failure's no success at all.

The cloak and dagger dangles,

Madams light the candles.
In ceremonies of the horsemen,
Even the pawn must hold a grudge.
Statues made of match sticks,
Crumble into one another,
My love winks, she does not bother,
She knows too much to argue or to judge.

The bridge at midnight trembles,

The country doctor rambles,
Bankers' nieces seek perfection,
Expecting all the gifts that wise men bring.
The wind howls like a hammer,
The night blows cold and rainy,
My love she's like some raven
At my window with a broken wing.

Infantile lyrics, is it? I noticed you rated Hendrix's "All Along the Watchtower" a 10. I would attempt to point out the irony of that rating vis-a-vis what you wrote below, but I'm pretty sure you wouldn't understand what I was talking about.

As far as I remember hearing Dylan always caused me some sympathy for his guitar that happen to play the same tune for the past 30+ years to sustain Donald Duck's voice and his infantile lyrics.
Sorry, I simply don't get it.

Reminds me of when I went through a Dylan and Joan Baez period in university, fortunately fell off my CB550, bumped my head and got better!  A great poet, this is reasonable, but often Dylan songs better when performed by others.

With this song and many others Dylan proved he could write a damn fine love song.  Especially with his unique lyrical take.  Poetic and above the other love songs of the time:

She knows too much to argue or to judge.  Valentines can't buy her.  She's true like ice, like fire.  Great stuff.

Bob's talent really lies in songwriting.  This gets a "1".  I can only think of one song of his that he sings that doesn't deserve a "1".
