How does rhyme effect a poem?
Using rhyme in poetry gives a poem a repetitive quality by sound without repeating a line or phrase in a poem. The use of rhyme allows poetry to gain a songlike quality. Rhyme is often used in children’s poetry to make the poems easier to remember. In poetry this memory concept is very important as it allows the reader to have a connection to a poem via their memory rather than just by reading the words on the page alone.
