Name for aaba structure in english class?

Ugh, I cant remember what the word was that my teacher called this.. She said we would have to write one and gave us an example of "the farmer in the dell"

But I can't remember the name for this aaba structure.. it might have started with an a, or i, or e? Idk.. :/

And she said aaba is not referring to rhyming, but like the words? like the farmer in the dell is:

The farmer in the dell

The farmer in the dell

Hi-ho, the derry-o

The farmer in the dell

Do you know what word I'm talking about?

Thanks! (:
