    What is the rhyme scheme for this poem? Look up, my people, The dawn is breaking, The world is waking, To a new bright day, When none defame us, Nor colour shame us, Nor sneer dismay.T
    The correct answer to this question is B, AABBCCD. A rhyme scheme is the order of a pattern of rhymes. These rhymes would appear at the end of a poem or a verse. The first line of every rhyme scheme will start with an A. The first line ends with people and the second line ends with breaking. Being that people and breaking don't rhyme, the second line would be B. The third line ends with the word waking, which rhymes with breaking, so it would also be B. The fourth and fifth line end with the Scriptures day and dismay. Those two words rhyme together, but they differ from the B words, making their scheme C. The last line ends with us, which doesn't rhyme with any of the other words, making it D.
