Hello. I was wondering if someone can review my attempt to scan & indicate the ryhme scheme of the following lines from John Keats's "Ode on a Grecian Urn" ?
When / old age / shall this gene/ration waste, ___
Thou/ shalt re/main, in mid/st of other woe ___
Than ours, a fri/end to man, to whom thou/ say'st, ___
Beau/ty is truth/, truth beau/ty,--that is all ___
Ye know/ on ear/th, and ye need to know/ ___
Ryhme Scheme: ABACB
The rhyme scheme is correct.
I'm not sure about the scansion, though. What poetic feet are you indicating in each line??
The first line has heptameter , next one is octameter. The third I believe, is petameter, and the fourth is octameter. The last line I'm not sure on.
Hey Tamir, I think we have the same class if you don't mind we can help each other. That is if you still have work to do. if not its fine.
