Rhyme & Rhythm

Limericks are good examples of the poetic devices of rhyme and rhythm.

There once was a girl from Kentucky

Who spent all her time with her ducky

Her duck took a dive

Into a beehive.

Now that ducky was very unlucky.

slide2

Rhyme is the repetition of end sounds in words.

For example:

Bump - jump wall - ball talk – hawk girl - curl

End rhymes appear at the end of two or more lines of poetry.

For example:

The gingham dog and the calico cat

Side by side on the table sat.

The Duel

Eugene Field

slide3

Another example of end rhyme:

The pig, if I am not mistaken,

Supplies us with sausage, ham, and bacon.

Let others say his heart is big -

I call it stupid of the pig. The Pig

Ogden Nash

One more example:

Behold the duck.

It does not cluck.

A cluck it lacks.

It quacks.

It is specially fond

Of a puddle or pond.

When it dines or sups,

It bottoms ups.

The Duck

Ogden Nash

Internal rhymes appear within a single line of poetry.

For example:

Abednego was meek and mild; he softly spoke, he sweetly smiled.

He never called his playmates names, and he was good in running games;

But he was often in disgrace because he had a dirty face!

Daniel and Dago were a pair who acted kindly everywhere;

They studied hard, as good as gold; they always did as they were told;

They never put on silly airs, but they took things that were not theirs.

When Festus was but four year old, his parents seldom had to scold;

They never called him “Festus, don’t”; he never whined and said “I won’t”.

Yet it was sad to see him dine. His table manners were not fine.

An Alphabet of Famous Goops

Gelett Burgess

Another example of internal rhyme:

Phrases from The Raven -

Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary,

While I nodded, nearly napping, suddenly there came a tapping,

Doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before;

Open here I flung the shutter, when, with many a flirt and flutter,

Nothing further then he uttered—not a feather then he fluttered—

Startled at the stillness broken by reply so aptly spoken,

What this grim, ungainly, ghastly, gaunt and ominous bird of yore

The Raven

Edgar Allen Poe

Rhyme schemerefers to the pattern of end rhymes in a poem.

Letters are used to identify a poem’s rhyming pattern. The letter a is placed after the first line and all lines that rhyme with the first line. The letter b identifies the next line ending with a new sound and all lines that rhyme with it. Letters continue to be assigned in sequence to lines containing new ending sounds.

For example:

Old Mother Hubbard (a)

Went to the cupboard (a)

To get her poor dog a bone (b)

But when she came there (c)

The cupboard was bare, (c)

And so the poor dog had none. (d)

As a class, find the rhyme scheme for the poems on your worksheet.
