Rhythm & Rhyme Reading Passages

While both prose and poetry may have rhythm and rhyme, they are most apparent in poetry. Rhythm is a sound pattern based on stressed and unstressed syllables. Rhyme is two or more words that have a corresponding sound, especially at the end of the word, as in "light" and "night." Poets often place rhyming words at the end of a line, but they may also place them in the middle of a line, which is called interior rhyme.
