A rhyme is a repetition of identical or similar sounds in two or more different words and is most often used in poetry. ... Verse is a writing that uses meter as its primary organisational mode, as opposed to prose, which uses grammatical and discoursal units like sentences and paragraphs. ...

I pour a Heineken brew to my deceased crew on memory lane
the grains beyond age, the dark veins of her mother
-Dylan Thomas
I bring fresh showers for the thirsting flowers
-Percy Bysshe Shelley
Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered weak and weary.
-Edgar Allan Poe
