Internal Rhyme

Internal rhyme is a rhyme that happens in a single line of verse.

It is also called middle rhyme.

Here is an example from two of my poems which exemplify internal rhyme.


The road was windy and cluttered with stones,

and the bright moonlight made the stones look like bones.

With broken shutters and a creaky floor

the house moaned “hello” when I entered the door.


and


On a dark and dreary night

as I read by candlelight

and the autumn winds howled through the rain.

A chilling, cryptic breeze

made me weak in the knees

and I thought I was going insane.
