Ophelia is a thirty-line poem about a person searching for his beloved, and finding her too late. The final imagery is that of her drowned, so this poem may not be suitable for a young audience.
There are six stanzas. Each stanza, has five lines. This poem does contain a systematic rhyme experiment - each stanza has a differing rhyme scheme, as follows: stanza 1: A,B,C,B,D; stanza 2: A,A,A,A,D; stanza 3: A,B,B,A,D; stanza 4: A,A,B,C,D; stanza 5: A,B,A,C,D; stanza 6: A,B,A,B,D. "D" is the fifth line of each stanza and is always the same word (thus it always rhymes)! There is no fixed meter, however each line is around 7 or 8 syllables. While the structure of six stanzas has been maintained as six chapter breaks, each stanza has had its lines split-apart in order to preserve the intent (the pacing) of each line, and thus each line is given its own page; there may be instances, however, where managing the evolution of the poem in your mind, some lines have been split into multiple pages (making it so a chapter is not necessarily equal to the count of lines of a stanza).
