      Because Mrs. Schwartz says so.

    Correct Answer
    D. Because it is often about one topic and stands alone as a poetic structure.
    Explanation
    A stanza is like a paragraph because it is often about one topic and stands alone as a poetic structure. In a poem, stanzas are used to organize thoughts and ideas, similar to how paragraphs are used to organize information in prose. Each stanza typically focuses on a specific theme or aspect of the poem's overall message, similar to how a paragraph focuses on a specific idea within a larger piece of writing. This helps to create a cohesive structure and allows the reader to easily follow the flow of the poem.
