Intro Page

    Rhyme scheme is found by looking at the last word of the first line of the poem.  It is assigned the letter "a".  Next look at the last word of the second line of the poem.  If it rhymes with the last word in the first line it is also assigned an "a".  If it does not rhyme, it is assigned a "b".  You continue looking at the last word of each line and assigning letters to each.  When you are finished, all the lines with "a" should rhyme, all the lines with "b" should rhyme and so on.

* The last word of each line of poetry is in red.
