"Write essay 3 (about 500 words) on how rhyme works in a poem. Select one of the poems linked below and explain why that poem interests you. You can analyze the poem's rhyme scheme and list the rhymes with their alphabetical eqivalent - AABBCC - or whatever is the rhyme scheme of the poem you selected. Once you have worked out your general outline, go into some detail on the rhymes themselves. If they are near rhymes, illustrate the effect by commenting on the rhyming words. If enjambment (the continuation of a sentence without a pause beyond the end of a line, couplet, or stanza) helps create the poem's rhyme scheme, you should describe it."
Rhymes are very important, especially when writing a poem. Poetry is an artistic expression of words to imbue its presentation with intensity and impact upon the reader or audience. Rhyme is one of the most important tools in creative writing as it allows authors to play with the tone and the delivery of their message. Rhyming words have the same audible sounds in its last syllable. Rhymes provide a rhythm and flow to poems. As in writing, the diversity of words, and the number of syllables direct the overall impact to the receiver.
BY MAYA ANGELOU
A free bird leaps
on the back of the wind
and floats downstream
till the current ends
and dips his wing
