Lessons From The Garden Number One

Shucking corn fresh from the garden It's not much fun language pardon Tasty treat_sweet to eat Lessons learned from this yucky chore Tough shuck protects kernels galore Pluck protects heart's soft meat First time writing Tail-Rhyme According to site: Rhyming couple -eight syllables Shorter line-does not rhyme Then another couplet Then a single line of fewer syllables that rhymes with line three But I have a question..... It shows rhyme scheme as aab,ccb but that is not what it says in the printed part.. Which is correct?
