Deana Croog Weekly Reflection 6 English 200 Rachel Mordecai In Thursday’s class, we reviewed the various types of rhyme and meter. Though scansion was said to be boring, I was delighted with the process; it brought me back to my theatrical days in high school. In acting class, every Shakespeare play in which I performed required a careful reading and analysis of rhyme and meter.

We ended class on Thursday discussing Roethke’s “My Papa’s Waltz”. We discussed how Roethke’s poem is written in iambic trimeter (for the most part), and has a rhyme scheme of ABABCDCDEFEFGHGH.
