GUEST,T-boy Are rhymes necessary? (41) RE: Are rhymes necessary? 19 Dec 02

Sorry, me again.

French does have rhymes, try this one:

Gal, amant de la reine, alla (tour magnanime)
Gallament de l'arne la Tour Magne Nmes.

This is an (extreme) example of a 'rich' rhyme, i.e. with more than one syllable rhyming. In this case it's a whole twelve-syllable Alexandrine couplet with both lines sounding exactly the same.

(I hope the line breaks come out all right, I'm a bit thick).
