Rhyme in Feast

Rhyme Examples in Feast:

Feast 1

"want..."   (Feast)

The slant rhyme between “plant” and “want” effectively brings out the poem’s central theme: the experience of unmet desire. Just as the narrator delights in the fruit of “want,” the reader “wants” the stanza to resolve. Because “want” does not quite rhyme with “plant,” the word “want” rather fittingly leaves us wanting.
