Meanings, definitions, concepts of daily use

A rhyme is the repetition of a sequence of sounds at the end of the verse, from the vowel of the final tonic syllable. When the rehearsal included all phonemes from this limit, it is a consonant rhyme. On the other hand, if the repetition takes place with the vowels from this limit, referred to as vowel rhyme.
The concept of rhyme allows also to allude to the composition in verse of the lyric genre, all of the verses/poems and all sounds consonant or assonants employed in a composition ("this book presents a very poor rhyme").
Examples of rhymes:
While in your womb my Portrait was drawn,
It was the Portrait of Tiberius erased?
Or desaccoutume the face of a traitor,
Have him you seen without seeing it and without recognizing?
I apologize yet, not, you as point seen him,
It was too hidden to be recognized;
A frank, open man, without hatred, without anger,
Unable to fear, this is point Tiberius;
In all that it seems, Tiberius is point there:
But Tiberius is hidden behind it all;
To climb to his throne it not continued me
That purposely to spy if it made me feel like;
(Excerpt from "The death of Agrippina", of Cyrano de Bergerac)
'seen' and 'recognized', for example, to form a vowel rhyme while 'wrath' and 'Tiberius' compose a consonant rhyme.
Hercule Savinien Cyrano, rather known as Cyrano de Bergerac ("Bergerac" is the name of a land owned by his family to Saint-Forget), born 6 March 1619 in Paris and died on 18 July 1655 in Sannois, was a writer (belonging to the movement of free-thinking) and french poet best known for his comedies.
This writer was not only a hero of science fiction but also the hero of the famous piece of Edmond Rostand and a comic strip character.
