Day 19 ~ How to Write a Monorhyme Poem for “30 poems in 30 days” #NationalPoetryMonth

So, how about a Monorhyme Poem?

A Monorhyme is a poem in which all the lines have the same end rhyme.
It can be however many lines or syllables you want and about any subject as long as the last word of each line rhymes with all the other last words of each line. And you don't skip (space) any lines. 

EXAMPLE of a Monorhyme Poem

Here’s my example ~ not that great, but you get the main idea. I’m sure your poems will be better.


Today I was surrounded with children’s chatter.
A party for Taylor, there was such a clatter.
Excited kids arrived like players up to batter.
A slip n’ slide made the water splatter.
When it started to rain, it really didn’t matter.
Grass-covered feet went pitter-patter.
Then out came the food on a pretty platter.
Pizza and cake, just making me fatter.
As the party ended, the kids began to scatter.

It's so much fun to make things rhyme
I like to do it all the time
I hope you don't think that's it's a crime
You won't even have to pay a dime!

Your birthday poem was adorable.

Today, in my dreams, I'm going to the beach. You can join me with your sand pail and swimsuit...;o)
Just go here:

I've been thinking all month about words that rhyme.
Sometimes I think I would rather find a tree to climb,
And watch the clouds float by in the summertime.
Or maybe I could go to Disneyland in Anaheim.
Or, I could bask by the pool sipping a cold soda of lemon and lime.
Is dreaming of such things really a crime?
But here I sit, thinking of words all of the time.
