Monorhyme

 

a poem in which all the lines have the same end rhyme. Widely used in Oriental poetry, the monorhyme was the object of poetic experiments in Europe during the Middle Ages and thereafter was almost exclusively a form of humorous verse, such as A. P. Sumarokov’s “Vain Precaution” and A. N. Apukhtin’s “When You Become Students, Children.” N. Aseev’s “Wasn’t the Firmament Blue?” is a monorhyme.
