What About Rhythm?
  • The arrangement of words used to create a flow in the poetry.
  • There are also multiple uses of rhythm, it can be used in music, poetry, literature and more.

  • It is important to realize the subject for the poem and how the words flow together
how do i rhyme
How do I rhyme?
  • Figure out a rhyme scheme for your poem. For example : You could rhyme every other line, or a pair of lines, it’s your choice.
  • Pick out the key words you want to rhyme with. It is usually easier to pick words at the end of lines.
  • Change the first letter of that word into a new letter, to try and find a word that rhymes. (ex: door – boor, coor, eoor, for, etc.)
  • 4. Use other multi-letter words you know. (ex: Orange, most people think nothing rhymes with this but you could say, “door hinge” and it has the same affect.”
what about those poems that don t rhyme
What about those poems that don’t rhyme?
  • These poems can sometimes be even more difficult than poems that do rhyme.
  • For these, it is all about the flow of the words, or the rhythm. This is important because you want your poem to all fit together in a way that is pleasing to the ear.

Green to me,

Is the color of a tree,

Grass in summer,

or a brightly colored hummer.
