Rhyme Scheme

    In your opinion, is using a rhyme scheme in poetry more amusing than reading a poem which has no rhyme scheme?

    I prefer not to rhyme but sometimes the rhyme makes the poem

      Do you know the difference between a rhyme and a rhyme scheme?

        The way my English teacher described rhyme schemes may confuse some of you, but it is using a pattern to write the poem.

        EXAMPLE:
        Roses are red.
        Violets are blue.
        Sugar is sweet.
        And so are you.

        The rhyme scheme for that poem was:
        A - No rhyme
        B - Rhyme
        C - No Rhyme
        B - Rhyme

        I don't think a poem needs a rhyme scheme to flow, although sometimes a rhyme scheme makes the poem entirely and, if it didn't rhyme, no one would like it.

          Thank you.. that is one way to describe a rhyme scheme, but the other way would be that the words don't literally rhyme but flow as if they rhymed.

          For example:

          rhyme scheme
          time seems
          line bleeds
          sign creeds
          blind team
          fine lean
          I see
          mighty
          rising

          Do you feel what I am trying to say? They don't actually rhyme but would flow if you were reading it correctly.

          Now would a poem that had a rhyme scheme like this be more amusing than a poem that has actual rhyming words?
