Poetry Month

April is Poetry Month, and because of the fascinating Haiku workshop and poetry reading we’re having later this month, both presented by local author and poet Claudia Radmore, we’re thinking about rhyming. Yes, we understand you don’t have to rhyme in order to have a good poem, but it’s usually the first thing we think of when we talk about poetry.

A few years back, we included a fun link to a list of 19 words in the English language that don’t rhyme. One of them is orange. Mental Floss has gone one better, and includes a list with 23 words—and “words” that actually do rhyme with them! (Okay, some are suspect…including names.) See if you can think of any others.

Happy rhyming!


read the rest of the list here.  Can you think of any more?
