poetic device: Rhyme Schemes
Most of my poems rhyme and have regular rhyme schemes, such as AABB, ABAB, or ABCB. But even I get tired of rhyming every line or every other line.
These poems have rhyme schemes that are more complex or interesting. They might be AABBA, AAAB CCCB, or something else. And many of them include internal rhymes throughout to make them more fun to read.
If you enjoy more complex and interesting ways of rhyming, read this lesson plan and see if you can identify the rhyme schemes in these poems.
