Rhyming Tricks
Using rhyming tricks to write better poems

(1) Rhyming Adjectives- Try to think of rhyming words to go with some of your adjectives. You can rhyme the grass color, green, with words like mean, lean, and keen.

(2) Synonyms - Using synonyms may help find rhymes for words that are hard to rhyme or that don't have good rhymes for your poem. For example, you may think of words like mashing, or bashing to rhyme with slashing. But using a synonym for slashing like pounding will give you more choices
of words to rhyme. You could say rounding or mounding.


(3) Suffixes - Another trick is to remove the suffix, in this case, ing, from the root words. That leaves you with slash to rhyme with words like dash, or mash, or gash, for examples. And using the synonym pound instead of pounding will enable you to rhyme with words like hound, sound, and ground.


(4) Inference - When you infer something, you use available information to figure out things that are not obvious. It's kind of like guessing. You can use this tactic about the grasshopper in the story by inferring it was flying before it landed on the sidewalk. Inferring the grasshopper was flying will lead you to
a list of rhymes like crying, lying, and tying.

 

Removing the suffix ing from flying will lead you to a list of rhymes with the root word fly: high, sky, and dry to name a few. This means inferring things can be a good way to find rhymes. :}

Finding the right Word for a Poem Humor


by R. Renée Bembry

 

Right Word to End your Work


Trying to find the right word for


A poem near completion


Can set your finger’s course to press


The button for deletion


To rid your screen of all your work


And start over again


If you can’t find the right word then


Your poem might as well end!


You sit there and you ponder while


Flipping through resource books- but


Propensity to wander


Still won’t let you end your work!
