Thread Name: Phrasing and rhyming
Subject: RE: Phrasing and rhyming
I love internal rhymes. In Spencer The Rover the Coppers sing: 'It tasted more sweeter than gold he had wasted'. I have always found that unsatisfactory, and prefer to sing: 'More sweeter it tasted than gold he had wasted'. Maybe that's the folk process (possibly in reverse).
