All words with in a stanza that also rhyme with the first word would also be labeled with an "a". Continue to work your way through the poem, using the next letter in the alphabet to indicate a new set of rhyming words. For example: Roses are red (A) Violets are blue (B) I cannot wait (C) to tutor you! (A) The rhyme scheme of the above poem would be written out as ABCA
