  TheFocus: "Man, this crap just writes itself!" - William Shakespeare.
Dec-09-14  ljfyffe: Shakespeare demonstrates an orange-rhyme trick; foreseeing his future nickname, the playwrite feigns a rhyme for <orange>:"The ousel-cock, so black of hue,/With orange-tawny bill,/The throstle with his note so true,/The wren with little quill"(Midsummer Night's Dream Song). A real rhyme for orange from Bill's quill-pen does not flow: his pen is perhaps not big enough to do the job:orange-tawny bill; little quill. Worse literary crimes have been committed by other writers. Oscar Wilde claimed that <hue> is a pun on <Hugh> which he supposes to be a boyfriend of Bill Shakespeare.
Edna Milla, the poetess, uses the cut-up method
to deal with the word "orange": "Boot, or an oar,/Or an orange peel/Be washed ashore.../About his heel"(Mortiturus). Though the poet true rhymes heel and peel, oar and ashore, the word orange lies cut to pieces at her feet:<or an oar;or an orange>. She stutters over the word.
Dec-09-14  ljfyffe: Correction:Millay.
Dec-09-14  ljfyffe: <Focus>The Bard could be stumped, however. He never did find a rhyme for orange:"The count is neither sad, nor sick, nor merry, nor well: but civil count; civil as an orange"(Much Ado About Nothing, Act II , sc. i). Bill becomes bitter as a Seville orange because he can't come up with a rhyme. He has to settle for <nor, nor, nor> to go with <or>ange. Canadian Al Purdy uses a bit of crap:"lost in the dry grass/golden oranges of dung/Only horses/ no stopwatch memories of palace ancestors(Cariboo Horses). On the plains inhabited by native Americans, he uncovers a perfect anagram for <oranges>:"Onagers racing thru Hither Asia"--from the inside of dockeys from the other side of the world, drops a perfect anagram: <onagers>.
Dec-09-14  ljfyffe: In Suzanne, Leonard Cohen writes of "tea and oranges that come all the way from China", but in return decides to "give her"/"river". Because of the influence of Canadien French, he ignores the "h" which explains, perhaps, why he thought <door hinges> and <oranges> might work. The nursery rhyme that goes "Oranges and lemons,/Say the bells of St. Clement's" teaches children not only French sound, but also that lemons are a hell of a lot easier to rhyme than oranges.
Dec-10-14  ljfyffe: Oranges: a third syllable to work with although a true rhyme begins on the accented syllables and flows throughout the rhymed words right to their ends, i.e. <oranges>and <doranges>(were there such a word). Oranges and sporanges (an actual word) almost rhyme. Christina Rossetti buys a rhyme from a hustler:"Come buy, come buy:Apples and quinces/ Lemons and oranges,/plump unpecked cherries,/Melons and raspberries"(Goblin Market). Oran<ges> and quin<ces>, not bad; <cherries> and rasp<berries>,better. Erin Moure stretches for a rhyme:"They looked up when she said 'the smoke of the villages'/They thought she was reaching for oranges" (Ephedra). She reaches for identical rhyme on the last syllables: oran<ges> and villa<ges>. The problem with oranges, however, is the sound of the vowel in the second syllable.

  TheFocus: Maybe we should change the name of "porridge" to "porrange"?

That solves it for me.


I sat down to have my meal of
Bacon, eggs and porrange,
A cup of coffee, a glass of milk,
And some segments of an orange.

Dec-10-14  ljfyffe: Though recognized as a very close rhyme, nixed by purists: <or/inj; por/rinj>
Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: Poetry can "be close."

Not that I would ever do it. I believe that rhymes should be "pure."

Dec-10-14  ljfyffe: Now-a-days rules are less formal, for better or for rhymes can be a bit looser and still be accepted by most even if not by the unwavering purist.

  TheFocus: <ljfyffe> <Now-a-days rules are less formal, for better or for rhymes can be a bit looser and still be accepted by most even if not by the unwavering purist.>

Not at one of the sites I publish at. Just one impure rhyme like that would get it rejected. They are very strict.

Dec-10-14  ljfyffe: That must be enough to make you as nervous as an outhouse rat.
Dec-10-14  ljfyffe: The second syllable of orange: therein lies the problem. With the poetry of William Wordsworth dancing in his head, Douglas LePan pulls an ear chimera from his bag of word tricks: "Now fifty years have gone/but, strange! the same dream lasts, that that same cloud or ange/may lead us on"(Analogues for rhe Sky). Using the French word <ange> in place of the English "angel", the poet forges rhyme for the second syllable of <or ange>:<on> and <gone>. Liane Heller claims to have found that elusive
rhyme:"I found a rhyme for orange./blancmange.
a dull white pudding"(Third Aniversary). Alas, <mange> and <ange> do not have the sound of the second syllable of an English orange. Melancholia strikes Miriam Mandel:"The delicacy/of the/arrangement/of my furniture, books, plants/bores me"--the "arrange-ment" is foreboding--"I should hang/red and yellow baubles and bows/from my ceiling/ finger- paint/my immaculate white walls/and leap/from/my high, wide balcony/with/an orange baloon/in my hand"(Section 14). But not even quite eye rhymes are ar<range>and or<ange>.

I don't understand why the Pineapple Express is not delivering pineapples to me.

This is all <TheFocus>'s fault, he kept all of them for hissself!!

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: <WannaBe> I am having some pineapples sent to you by Express Service.

I am sure you may want to put some pineapple slices on your Christmas ham.

Premium Chessgames Member
  TheFocus: My buddy puts pineapple slices on his ham with a cherry in the center of each slice, and pokes cloves into the ham also.

Ho! Broke the mouth kine good!

So tender.

Dec-12-14  ljfyffe: Elmer<Focus>Really? You don't expect the wabbit to fall for that old pineapple/grenade gag, do you?
