Wikipedia defines rhyme as a repetition of similar sounds in two or more words and is most often used in poetry and songs. Rhymes might be useful not just for professional poets. They can be quite handy, when you try to create a nice greeting, party invitation, or love song. That is cool, and you will see how your rating goes up, when you produce such piece of art. But that is not easy to make it. Words are running away, and you may find it hard to use the proper rhymes during composition. Get some assistance from the Web.
