Hello. Can someone help me with scanning a poem?

1. A. Scan the following lines from Mary, Lady Chudleigh's poem "To the Ladies". Mark the syllables, separate the feet with short vertical lines, and indicate the rhyme scheme

Him still serve, him still obey, ____

And nothing act, and nothing say, ____

But what haughty lord thinks fit, ____

Who with the power, has all the wit. ___

1. B. What is the meter of these four lines?

Because the ending lines are "obey, say, fit, and wit", the rhyme scheme could be AABB or BBAA. But I'm not very good at this kind of stuff.

Thanks in advance.
