In poetry, a consonance is the repetition of similar or identical vowel sounds inside words.


For instance,
(1) "Hear the mellow wedding bells" (Edgar Allen Poe) – consonance of the "ll"

(2) "It's hot and it's monotonous" (Sondheim) – consonance of the "t"

(3) "I dropped the locket in the thick mud" (Robert Frost) – consonance of the "ck"
