    Thanks, even theme is correct?
    I have three types of verses to choice from.

    -Rhyming verse
    -Blank verse (has rhythm, usually iambic pentameter, but has no rhyme)
    -Free verse

    I believe now, it's blank verse. Am I correct?

    You don't hear the rhyme here?? Read it all ALOUD!!

    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.
