ABCB Rhyme Scheme

20 Definition And Examples Of Poems That Use ABCB Rhyme Scheme

These poems use the ABCB rhyme scheme. The ending words of lines two (B) and four (B) rhyme with each other. They are assigned the same letter (B) because they are "related" through rhyme. While the end words in lines one (A) and three (C) do not rhyme with each other and are therefore assigned different letters.
