Use the following words in a sonnet as “rhymed-ends” in the bouts-rimés tradition, which is described as, “lists of words that rhyme to one another, drawn up by another hand, and given to a poet, who was to make a poem to the rhymes in the same order that they were placed upon the list.

  • Snore
  • Pragmatic
  • Atomic
  • Labor
  • Pliers
  • Conspires
  • Article
  • Swallow
  • Fallow
  • Cuticle
  • Margarine
  • Mold
  • Told
  • Tamarind

Thanks to Seattle poet, L.J. Morin for an introduction into the practice of bouts-rimés.
