Answer:

Yes. If I am understanding you correctly, this actually happens all the time.

Explanation:

A Rhyme Scheme is a pattern in the ending sounds of the lines of a poem.

Rhyme Schemes are most commonly classified using letters to represent the different rhymes. A simple example would be:

A
B
A
B

A poem in this format might look something like:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I have a head
And so do you

You can think of a Stanza as a paragraph for poems. It's simply a group of lines. In Free Verse poems, the number of lines per Stanza doesn't really matter. However, if you are using a Rhyme Scheme, you will want to keep the number of lines per Stanza consistent.

But none of this answers your question. Now that the base information has been laid out, I can get to what you really what to know.

The very same ABAB example from above can be continued into a second stanza by simply adding CDCD. For example:

Roses are red
Violets are blue
I have a head
And so do you

This is an example
Of how we can write
I hope it is ample
