    Thank you, so very much!!

    You're welcome.

    You don't even really have to read it to know. Just look at the pattern of lines!


    3 sets of 4 lines each (= 12 lines = 3 quatrains)
    2 lines (couplet) set off at the end

    Each of the quatrains has its own rhyme scheme.
    The couplet at the end rhymes separately, too.
