    Line 1 = a

    Line 2 = b

    Line 3 should rhyme with line 1 (a)

    Line four should rhyme with line 2 (b)

    Line 5 = c

    Line 6 = d

    Line 7 = e

    Line 8 should rhyme with line 5 (c)

    Line 9 should rhyme with line 6 (d)

    Line 10 should rhyme with line 7 (e)












    p.s. please do not pay any attention to the person below me, that is a completely incorrect answer and I would give them an F.

    Rhyme Scheme: the way lines rhyme in a poem or song here’s an example, the rhyme scheme comes before each line: A) I went to the kitchen to make a sandwich A) I made a mistake, and got eaten by a witch B) I went to the bathroom to wash my face B) I made a mistake and ran into a vase if you have something that rhymes with line A, then the letter a would be used again. There are different ways, like ABAB, ABAC, AABB, or whatever. Some are just ABCDEFGHIJKL…..that’s free verse. Hope this helps!

    Each line of a poem is assigned a letter, and lines that share a letter must rhyme. For example, the poem “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost would be as follows, the letters in parenthesis are the rhyme scheme:

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, (a)

    And sorry I could not travel both (b)

    And be one traveler, long I stood (a)

    And looked down one as far as I could (a)

    To where it bent in the undergrowth; (b)

    So this stanza has a rhyme scheme of abaab.

    Each line is labeled with a letter and each letter has the same rhyme.

    For example:

    A- rhyme 1

    B- rhyme 2

    A- rhyme 1

    B- rhyme 2

    C- rhyme 3 and so on

    the same letters rhyme. If u use ‘face’ for ‘a’ then next time u would use ‘chase’ because they rhyme.

    each letter (a-e) stands for a different ending sound. (-ace, -ee, -un,…etc) each is different. so for each line of the poem, it goes

    line that ends with “a” sound

    line that ends with “b” sound

    line that ends with “a” sound

    line that ends with “b” sound

    line that ends with “c” sound…


    so every other line rhymes.
