Wikipedia Draft #1

I intend to make an addition to the Broken Rhyme stub with the sample of with Gerard Manley Hopkins’ poem, The Windhover. The site I’ve taken this from seems to have digitized an entire collection of Hopkins’ work from 1844-1899. []

CAUGHT this morning morning’s minion, king-
  dom of daylight’s dauphin, dapple-dawn-drawn Falcon, in his riding
  Of the rolling level underneath him steady air, and striding
High there, how he rung upon the rein of a wimpling wing
In his ecstasy! then off, off forth on swing,         5
  As a skate’s heel sweeps smooth on a bow-bend: the hurl and gliding
  Rebuffed the big wind. My heart in hiding
Stirred for a bird,—the achieve of; the mastery of the thing!
Brute beauty and valour and act, oh, air, pride, plume, here
  Buckle! AND the fire that breaks from thee then, a billion         10
Times told lovelier, more dangerous, O my chevalier!
  No wonder of it: shéer plód makes plough down sillion
Shine, and blue-bleak embers, ah my dear,
  Fall, gall themselves, and gash gold-vermillion.

    I’ve found another Broken Rhyme in the song Warning by Incubus.
    “…I suggest we learn to love our-
    -selves before it’s made illegal…”
    I’ll aim to find more of these sorts of examples to add to this thread. I feel that the best method for informing others about Broken Rhyming is to provide different uses for it

    I cannot find ANY books in our library that talks about BROKEN RHYME
