Welcome All

Am aspiring published rhyming poetry author. Have wrote many typical/perfect rhyming poems. In this endeavor found not much of this type poetry exists; thus, this site was born. Have published, "The Rhyme It Out Project: Why Not Rhymes Part One & Part Two” in my endeavor to promote rhyming poetry. More about this endeavor under that page’s title and can view some poetry there; as well. Currently am working on "My Form Created-Rhyme It Out!", where I created my own form; which you can see more details under that page. Learn more about me under the “About Me” page. Those whose wish to contact me can do so via the contact form at bottom of site or in response to post and can follow via "Follow By Email" Link. My email is whynotrhymes@gmail.com. Am a rhyming poet that really likes writing rhyming poems and hopes this site encourages others to join me in this rhyming poetry endeavor. Rhyme On!

The Rhyme It Out Project Part One

The Rhyme It Out Project! Why Not Rhymes
RHYMING POEMS about Rhyming Poems 

Rhyme It Out! is a project started in January 2019. It is the objective to draw an audience to the art of rhyming poems by displaying the different forms of poetry in poems that rhyme and are about poems and/or rhyming poems. Hope is in redeeming the art of Rhyming Poems. Below you will see a few poems of the Part 1 poems that are now published and is copywrite in eBook and paperback form. You will see Part 2 under that tab. 

Rhyme It Out! Part 1 
 This project was a challenge, but thoughtfully enjoyable!

The Rhyme It Out Project! Part One

A-V List

"A" Abstract
According to Wikipedia, Edith Sitwell used the term "abstract" in the same context as Sound poetry; meaning that the sound, texture, and rhythm of the poem is what makes it an abstract, more so than the meaning of the words.

Rhymes A Lot

Poems formed as abstract
Most often than not
Are written in order to attract
Emotions from which they brought
Meaning of words soon forgot
That have no real plot
Only given not much to thought
For the words not caught
Here; an abstract that rhymes a lot

"G" Ghazal
The ghazal (pronounced "guzzle") is a Persian form. These poems are couplets being thoughts on their own; however, working together, as well. Rhyme scheme usually follows as; aa, ba, ca and so on.

Rhyming Word Challenge

Rhyming poems for some can be a challenge
But, we always mange to make it happen

As humans we have words that rhyme
In our everyday language that we manage

How fun rhyming words for some can be
That can also enhance our knowledge

Sometimes rhyming may seem to need training college
But, most times it only takes self-knowledge

Some of us poets don't always agree
Rhyming words in a poem to be a challenge

“N’ Noet
The noet is another very simple to understand form. It is a nine-line poem that starts at line one with nine syllables and decreases a number in syllables with each line; so by the time line nine is formed it is one syllable word.

Fun Time Rhyme

This form a fun challenge to make rhyme
Only hoping that it’s not near miss
Giving thought to allow time
Making it rhyme like this
Hoping to be prime
Not hit and miss
Had fun time
In this

“R” Rispetto
The rispetto follows the rhyme scheme of ababccdd or abababcc. There are no rules about subject matter; however, have found one has a choice of two versions. They are:
Rispetto #1: Poem comprised of two quatrains written in iambic tetrameter
Rispetto #2: Poem comprised of eight hendecasyllabic lines, usually one stanza.
Which ever one you choose, either one does follow the rhyme scheme mentioned above.

Rhyming of Iambic Syllables

As form of iambic syllables as control
Giving this poem a form cretic
Making the form as prime-goal
In rhyming of its form poetic

A second stanza it did entreat
In order to rhyme it complete
The iambic syllables did enhance
Where the rhyming of the poem did dispense

“V” Villanelle
The villanelle is French form, like most other French poems, incorporates a strict rhyme scheme and repetition. The villanelle is a quadratic poem that is five tercets consisting of line lengths of 8-10 syllables. The first and third lines of the first stanza become refrains that repeat throughout the poem.

Here is how it should look:

A (1)
A (2)




A (2)


A (1)


A (2)

Rhyming Form, I defend, Just in Time

This being the last form of poems that rhyme
Where the journey comes to an end
Finishing this rhyming project just in time

Hoping the point made as they chime
That rhyming poems can become the trend
This being the last form of poems that rhyme

Perfect this poem for rhyming as its prime
For the tone in message it does send
Finishing this rhyming project just in time

How easy rhyming poems can become in-time
In giving them consideration, I defend
This being the last form of poems that rhyme

Hope this journey of rhymes did chime
Giving thought in rhyming poems as a trend
Finishing this rhyming project just in time

Had fun in this journey of poems that rhyme
But now it all must come to an end
This being the last form of poems that rhyme
Finishing this rhyming project just in time
