the rhyme scheme is abcb efgf hiji
What about "D"?
Added by: Jough (Editor)
I think you missed D in your scheme, lili.

Here's the rhyme scheme:

Church A
Home B
Chorister C
Dome B

Surplice D
Wings E
Church A (it's the same word as A, even)
sings E

Clergyman A/F (slant rhyme with Clerg/Church)
long G
least H
along G

It's not an exact science, since words are pronounced in different ways in different regions, but I think 'Church' rhymes with 'Church' in any region. ;)

Good luck with your assignments.

The last word in the third sentence in the last stanza is last, not least.
