Which poem are you looking to analyze?  When looking for a poem's rhyme scheme, it's helpful to look at the last word at the end of each line in order to identify the pattern.  Remember, rhyme scheme is the name for that pattern used to create the poem. For example, with the common "Roses are Red" poem, you can identify the ABAB rhyme scheme.  The first line is labeled A and all words that rhyme with that word will also be labeled A.  The next line is B and each word that rhymes with it will also be labeled B.  You will continue this pattern until you finish the poem.

Roses are red,        A
Violets are blue,     B
Sugar is sweet,      A
And so are you.     B
