  Rhyme - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A rhyme scheme is the pattern of rhyming lines in a poem.
One of the earliest rhyming poems in English is The Rhyming Poem.
Rhyme was not used in Latin poetry until it was introduced under the influence of local vernacular traditions in the early Middle Ages.

 Rhyme - LoveToKnow 1911
RHYME, more correctly spelt Rime, from a Provencal word rim (its customary English spelling is due to a confusion with rhythm), a literary ornament or device consisting of an identity of sound in the terminal syllables of two or more words.
It was not until the invention of Blank Verse that rhyme found a modern rival, and in spite of the successes of this instrument rhyme has held its own, at all events for nondramatic verse, in the principal literature of Europe.
There is no doubt that the laws of rhyme, like other artificial regulations, may be too severe, but there is no evidence that the natural beauty which pure rhyme introduces into poetry is losing its hold on the human ear or is in any real danger of being superseded by accent or rhythm.

 Guide to Verse Forms - Rhyme
Another form of internal rhyme has a word in the middle of one line rhyming with the the word at the end of a different line; this is sometimes called cross rhyme - which is liable to be confused with cross-rhyme, a particular kind of 4-line stanza.
One particular form of cross rhyme, in which the word at the end of one line rhymes with a line in the middle of the next, is common in Irish poetry, where it is known as aicill rhyme.
Rhyming a word in the middle of one line with a word in the middle of another is called interlaced rhyme.

 rhyme. The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition. 2001-05
In the Middle Ages, end rhyme (rhyme at the end of a line), assonance (repetition of related vowel sounds), and alliteration (repetition of consonants, particularly at the beginning of words) were predominant in vernacular verse.
After 1300 rhyme came to be the outstanding metrical mark of poetry until the introduction of blank verse in the 16th cent.
Alliteration and assonance were both called rhyme by early writers, but today two words are said to rhyme only when the sound of the final accented syllable of one word (placed usually at the end of a line of verse) agrees with the final accented syllable of another word so placed.

Rhyme is the repetition of the sound of one word or the last syllable(s) of one word in a second word or the last syllable(s) of a second word.
Feminine rhyme is also known as trochaic rhyme because it follows the pattern of a trochee and a perfect trochaic line must have this type of rhyme (although as stated above it is permissible to truncate the final foot to create a masculine rhyme).
Rhyme at the beginning or in the middle of a line is used to achieve effect much in the same way as alliteration.

 Rhyme scheme - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A rhyme scheme is the pattern of rhyming lines in a poem or in lyrics for music.
It is usually referred to by using letters to indicate which lines rhyme.
A basic distinction is between rhyme schemes that apply to a single stanza, and those that continue their pattern throughout an entire poem (see chain rhyme).

Rhyme is perhaps the most recognizable convention of poetry, but its function is often overlooked.
Rhyme helps to unify a poem; it also repeats a sound that links one concept to another, thus helping to determine the structure of a poem.
There are varieties of rhyme: internal rhyme functions within a line of poetry, for example, while the more common end rhyme occurs at the end of the line and at the end of some other line, usually within the same stanza if not in subsequent lines.

 LitGloss - R    (Site not responding. Last check: )
Rhyme is predominantly a function of sound rather than spelling; thus, words that end with the same vowel sounds rhyme, for instance, day, prey, bouquet, weigh, and words with the same consonant ending rhyme, for instance vain, feign, rein, lane.
End rhyme is the most common form of rhyme in poetry; the rhyme comes at the end of the lines.
Rhyme schemes are mapped out by noting patterns of rhyme with small letters: the first rhyme sound is designated a, the second becomes b, the third c, and so on.

I put this program together because I was tired of leafing back and forth through rhyming dictionaries for slant rhymes, imperfect rhymes, off-rhymes, or whatever else you want to call them.
Generally, you will first want to try to find a perfect rhyme, then rhymes with the same family ending; plosive (b, d, g, k, p, and t), fricative (ch, f, j, s, sh, v, z), or nasal (m, n, ng), and then, any slant-rhyme that works.
Also, remember it is very important to use a rhyme which doesn’t force the singer to place the accent on the wrong syllable of a word.

rhyme scheme (rime skeem): the pattern of rhyme used in a poem, generally indicated by matching lowercase letters to show which lines rhyme.
The rhyme scheme may follow a fixed pattern (as in a sonnet) or may be arranged freely according to the poet's requirements.
Instead of perfect or identical sounds or rhyme, it is the repetition of near or similar sounds or the pairing of accented and unaccented sounds that if both were accented would be perfect rhymes (stopped and wept, parable and shell).

As I said before, with many of these, all the lines rhyme except the last, I like the way a poem of that form sounds, especially when there's syllabic similarity in all of the lines.
B rhyme scheme, because of how long it is (while maintaining rhyme continuity) and because of the change in the rhyme.

 Glossary of Poetic Terms from BOB'S BYWAY
