Two line stanza or a Couplet. Two 4 line stanzas or Quatrains. Then two more 6 line stanzas. One more 4 line stanza. And the last Eight line stanza or Octet.2.Refrains or other forms of word repetition:Refrains: There are 2 refrains repeated in the poem. “Going where I can't be found and I won't be coming round” and “No, I'm an American on the Canadian Shield andI'm putting down roots in your frozen fields” and “It gets cold but you feel so good tobe a stranger in town and you're understood”3.Rhyme scheme: No clear rhyme scheme. There are few rhymed couplets andother rhymes but nothing consistent throughout.4.Meter: No clear meter. This makes it seem a little rambling and frantic.
