A GLOSSARY OF RHYMEShttp://www.public.asu.edu/~aarios/formsofverse/furtherreading/page2.html
The following terms occur frequently in discussions of poetry and critical writing, but not with absolute consistency. It may be tempting, simply because the terms are listed here, to get overly scrupulous about fine distinctions between, for example, "identical" and "rich" rhyme, or "broken" as opposed to "linked" rhyme--but these are distinctions that rarely find practical sanction in critical usage and are often much more useful for the writer. Nonetheless, it may be useful to consider the various terms that do appear in the literature. Even more, it may be useful to gather and describe a range of rhymes available in the English language.
English is often said to be poor in rhyme, as opposed to, for example, the Romance languages, but this glossary and definition of terms will point to a rich variety of choices. This list is adapted from Poetic Designs, by Stephen Adams (Broadview Press, 1997), and Manual of English Meters, by Joseph Malof (Bloomington: Indiana U Press, 1970).
The rhymes are distinguished by usage in the following ways:

I'd love to hear from you.
I write posts on this blog for two reasons. I want to promote my own work (what writer and artist doesn't), and I want to share my love of the written and visual arts. In the past nine years although I've written fiction and non-fiction, I've been focused mainly on poetry. I am interested in hearing from writers, artists and readers. I am actively seeking to expand my vision of what is possible as a poet/writer/artist through shared self expression. The effect of words and images on our psyches can be profound.
