3. What is the rhyme scheme of the following Anne Bradstreet poem?
To Her Father with Some Verses
Most truly honored, and as truly dear,
If worth in me or ought I do appear,
Who can of right better demand the same
Than may your worthy self from whom it came?
The principal might yield a greater sum,
Yet handled ill, amounts but to this crumb;
My stock's so small I know not how to pay,
My bond remains in force unto this day;
Yet for part payment take this simple mite
Where nothing's to be had, kings loose their right.
Such is my debt I may not say forgive,
But as I can, I'll pay it while I live;
Such is my bond, none can discharge but I,
Yet paying is not paid until I die.

Sorry -- I didn't notice the ~.
Your answers for 3 and 5 are right, but you need to recount the couplets.
ok thank you, and there are seven.
i was right on the first one too.
Yes. They are all right now. :-)
wait. is number 3 wrong?
I think number 3 is aa,bb,cc,dd,ee,ff,gg
can u give me an example of English poem with rhyming scheme aa bb cc
DBCCBB are the 100% correct answer and i swear by it! just took this quick check :)
LELE is right I just got 6/6
3) Is wrong, its C or the third row. Because the pattern repeats
DBCCBB LELE is correct
Anne Bradstreet was never married
A poems cadence, pace, or ongoing momentum
The writer greatly respects her father and the way he has raised her
A coin of little value
