A rhyme (sometimes spelt rime) is a repetition of similar sounds in two or more words and is most often used in poetry and songs. The word "rhyme" may also refer to a short poem, such as a rhyming couplet or other brief rhyming poem such as nursery rhymes.
Famous quotes containing the word rhyme:
“The rhyme of the poet
Modulates the kings affairs.”

and sleeping-hours excepted.”

Breed out of the contagion of the throng,
Saving the rhyme rats hear before they die.”
