siliotto The poems with rhymes have long characterized the Italian literature, reigning undisputed at least until the Renaissance, when it appeared on the literary scene the "in blank verse".
My poems are in most cases in "rima perfetta", "rima piana" and "rima alternata".

To better speak, some knowledge will be useful:

We have "rima perfetta" when the words end in identic way, for example: intorno-contorno. We have "rima imperfetta" when the identity is not absolute.
Then we have two subcategories:
a. Consonanza: consonant equal but different vowels (eg dare-odore)
b. Assonanza: identical vowels and consonants different (eg passare-sale)

We say "poesie in rima piana" when the stress is on the penultimate syllable, "poesie in rima sdrucciola" when the stress is on the antepenultimate syllable, "poesie in rima tronca" when the accent is on the last syllable.

Finally we call "poesie in rima alternata" those that follow the pattern ABAB CDCD. Other schemes are: rima baciata (AABB CCDD), rima ripetuta (ABC ABC), rima incatenata (ABA BCB CDC), rima incrociata (ABBA CDDC) and rima invertita (ABC CBA).
