I need help with the rhyme scheme and rhythm pattern.

"It was many and many a year agoIn a kingdom by the sea,That a maiden there lived whom you may knowBy the name of ANNABEL LEE;And this maiden she lived with no other thoughtThan to love and be loved by me."


Select one stanza to scan. Identify the rhyme scheme and rhythm pattern.

    Let's see what that looks like in proper poetry form.

    "It was many and many a year ago
    In a kingdom by the sea,
    That a maiden there lived whom you may know
    By the name of ANNABEL LEE;
    And this maiden she lived with no other thought
    Than to love and be loved by me."

    Rhyme scheme: a b a b c b

    What rhythmic pattern do you see?
