What are 3 examples of rhyme schemes? My assignment was to get 5 and I got only 1. Can you give me 3 more? Here's one of the poems I have:
To Anthea, Who May Command Him Any Thing
Robert Herrick

Bid me to weep, and I will weep, A
While I have eyes to see; B
And having none, and yet I will keep A
A heart to weep for three B

A and A rhymes, B and B rhymes... Get it??

If you can, please give me examples that are simple like this one.

Thanks! Bye
