Regarding rhyme... look at lines 2 and 4 in each stanza.
Yes, the poem is definitely about the "seasons of life" and about the inevitability of death.
Yes, she is saying that even though life is finite, the world goes on.
Many people belief that death is only the next "season" or "page" in life. Anonymous, I would take to mean that she does not know what the next season/page will be or what her relationship with it will be. This is a very interesting poem.
We fall l≠ike leaves,
anonymous as snow,
like ash, like weeds
under some farmerís hoe.
We fear the dark
and watch the light recede.
We know death smiles
on every child conceived.
The moon goes on,
relentless in the sky;
in cold complicity,
the stars comply.
(How did it grow so late?)
I turn the page. I wait.
I think you're right for the most part. Try to form a central image in your mind for each stanza. Then you'll know if your interpretation is accurate. And remember that you may "see" the ideas in this poem differently from other people. Don't worry about that.
I think you're right about that last stanza, too. Yes, waiting.
Rhyme -- yes -- the even-numbered lines rhyme (or come very, very close):
conceived (not exact, but close)
How to characterize that rhyme scheme?
