    Note Latin poetry never rhymes!


    P.S. Rather than calling your post English, isn't it really Latin?

  2. Sra, Thank you for responding.
    No, I'm talking about the Latin alphabet (i.e. ABCDEFG, etc.) Rhyme scheme operates by assigning rhyming lines to a specific letter (so something like "Comrades all, that stand and gaze,/Walk henceforth in other ways;/See my neck and save your own:/Comrades all, leave ill alone." would be abab) I'm wondering if the stanzas of a poem exceed the letter Z, what symbols are assigned to represent the scheme.

    Here are many others:

    I've never had occasion to need more than the letters in our alphabet. Do you have a particular poem in mind?
