    What is the rhyme scheme of the excerpt from "Lochinvar"? So stately his form, and so lovely her face, That never a hall such a galliard did grace; While her mother did fret, and her father did fume, And the bridegroom stood dangling his bonnet and plume; And the bride-maidens whispered "'Twere better by far To have matched our fair cousin with young Lochinvar." A. AAABBB B. AABBCC C. AABCBC D. AABCCB
