  1. beginning rhyme

    Beginning rhyme, sometimes referred to as head rhyme or initial rhyme, occurs when the first syllables or words in two or more lines of poetry have the same sound or phonetic similarity. In this form of rhyme, the emphasis is not on the end of the lines as in traditional English rhymes, but rather at the start. This technique is often used to create a rhythmic and musical effect in poetry.
