    RHYMES are types of poems which have the the repetition of the same or similar sounds at the end of two or more words most often at the ends of lines. This technique makes the poem easy to remember and is therefore often used in Nursery Rhymes. There are several derivatives of the term rhyme which include Double rhyme, Triple rhyme, Rising rhyme, Falling rhyme, Perfect and Imperfect rhymes.

    There is no set definition for the amount of stanzas and lines within a rhyme.

    Examples 1 & 2 by Unknown Authors:

    excerpt from Humpty Dumpty poem

    Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,
    Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.
    All the King's horses, And all the King's men
    Couldn't put Humpty together again!
    ----

    Mary Mary Quite Contrary

    Mary Mary quite contrary,
    How does your garden grow?
    With silver bells and cockle shells
    And pretty maids all in a row.
    ----
    ----

    Interesting Reading:

    Find out who or what was Humpty Dumpty
    Find out the secret, blood thirsty story behind Mary, Mary Quite contrary
