Monorhyme Definition

An identical rhyme on every line, common in Latin and Arabic. "aaaaa..."


A Monorhyme is a type of poem in which every single line has the same rhyming sound at the end of the verse. A monorhyme can occur in a stanza, a simple passage, or even an entire poem as long as each line has that repetitive sound. More often than not, you will see the use of a monorhyme within the middle of a piece; However, this is not the only combination or use of this tool that we see in poetry as it can take many different forms within said literature.

The use of the monorhyme within poetry is often seen in works and pieces published by Welsh, Arabic, and Latin cultures. One example of this seen in the "The Book of One Thousand and One Nights", and it can also be seen in some examples of music published today. Another excellent example of a piece using the monorhyme tool in its literature is a poem entitled "A Monorhyme in the Shower", which was written by Dick Davis. 

Monorhyme Poem Example

A break from my career,
to visit a new frontier.
Where life is not severe,
and stress will disappear.
I'll become a pioneer,
a new found volunteer.
To help this old sphere,
make it's air all clear.
We will persevere,
for I'm the brigadier.
So as I tip my beer,
lets offer up a cheer.
Lets make this our year
where everyone will be sincere.
