Rhyming Words in Poems

  1. We mostly come across rhyming words in poems and nursery rhymes.
  2. Examples:

    My Lazy Cat
    There was a Cat
    There was a fat
    He couldn't even sit on a mat

    Nature-1

    In the above poem, the last words of all the three lines rhymes with each other.

  3. Poems have rhyming words in different patterns.
  4. In the poem given below, the word ‘land’ in the first line rhymes with the word ‘sand’ in the third line. And the word ‘say’ in the second line rhymes with the word ‘day’ in the fourth line.

    Examples:

    'The boy is sitting on the land
    There is something he wants to say
    He is playing with the sand
    He looked at the sea whole day'

  5. In some poems, the first and the second line rhymes with each other, the third and the fourth lines rhyme with each other, and so on.
  6. Examples:

    ‘The Sun looks bright
    The sky is full of light
    The stars are shining
    The moon is smiling.’

  7. Look at the poem above. The word ‘bright’ in the first line rhymes with the word ‘light’ in the second line. And the word ‘shining’ in the third line rhymes with the word ‘smiling’ in the fourth line.

  8. In some poems, the first and the fourth lines and the second and third lines rhyme with each other.
    Look at the poem below. The word ‘sticks’ in the first line rhymes with the word ‘trick’ in the fourth line. And the word ‘stones’ in the second line rhymes with the word ‘bones’ in the third line.

Examples:

‘My pet got me some sticks
And some stones
Instead, I gave him some bones
This is my trick.’

Common Mistakes

Remember, two lines of a poem are said to rhyme when they come one after another and are connected by both rhythm and rhyme. Don’t get confused, and keep this point in mind while looking for rhyming lines in the poem.

Examples:

‘I am a little teapot short and stout
Here is my handle and here is my spout’
