Rhyme Scheme

Definition:
The rhyme scheme is the practice of rhyming words placed at the end of the lines in the prose or poetry. Rhyme scheme refers to the order in which particular words rhyme. If the alternate words rhyme, it is an “a-b-a-b” rhyme scheme, which means “a” is the rhyme for the lines 1 and 3 and “b” is the rhyme affected in the lines 2 and 4.

Example:
Roses are red (a)

Violets are blue (b)

Beautiful they all may be (c)

But I love you (b)

The above is an “a-b-c-b” rhyme scheme.

  2. Did you hear about the rose that grew from a crack in the concrete?
    Provin’ nature’s laws wrong
    It learned to walk without having feet
    Funny it seems but by keeping its dreams
    it learned to breathe FRESH air
    Long live the rose that grew from concrete
    when no one else, even cared

    You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete
    had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its
    tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun.
    Well, we are the rose – this is the concrete – and these are
    my damaged petals. Don’t ask me why […]

    1. they go like the alphabet well kinda the A goes before everything else and the b comes second and so on they have to be in alphabetical order
