Why Do We Rhyme?

“Rhyme, that enslaved queen,
that supreme charm of our poetry,
that creator of our meter.”
~ Victor Hugo
“Constantly risking absurdity and death
whenever he performs above the heads of his audience,
the poet, like an acrobat, climbs on rhyme
to a high wire of his own making.”
~ Lawrence Ferlinghetti

Dr.Seuss


Why do we rhyme?
Is there a reason?

A time for rhyme -
a rhyming season?

Or, do we just rhyme
without rhyme or reason?
