Types of Rhyme

1. Perfect Rhyme – however many syllables rhyme , initial sound is different.

  • Example: run/sun; honey/bunny; hominy/domini

2. Identical Rhyme – rhyming words are identical

-Ex. :bear/bear;hairy/hairy;element/element

Rich rhyme – when the rhyming words are homonyms: bear/bare

3. Near Rhyme –approximate rhymes chosen for poetic effect.

rhyme scheme
Rhyme Scheme
  • Mark the first line with a. Mark all other lines in the entire poem that rhyme with it as a. (If there are no others then do not worry)
  • Find the first line in the poem that does not rhyme with a. Mark it b. Mark all other lines in the poem that rhyme with that line b.
  • Continue with the next unmarked line. Follow the procedure until all rhyming lines are marked.
  • Rhymeless lines you can leave unmarked or mark them with an x.
