See below.


Definition: A rhyme involving a word in the middle of a line and another at the end of the line or in the middle of the next.


Once upon a midnight dreary, while I pondered, weak and weary - Edgar Allen Poe ( The Raven ). <-- One of my favourite poems, I recommend it (:

I lost my dog in the midst of fog. / He found his way home, he doesn't like to roam.

I'd like to jump into the ocean. / But don't dump me in instead.

The snowflakes are dancing, floating, and falling. / The church bells are calling, but I will not go.

It is fallible men who make the law. / This may be a flaw, but there's no other way.

I got all my examples from this site.
Hope it helps (:
