"When the evening is spread out against the sky..."   (The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock)

These first two lines of the poem form a rhyming couplet. Though the rest of the poem makes heavy use of rhyme, there's no distinct rhyme scheme. Eliot does not write in any particular meter; instead, he varies his lines and stanzas for enhanced musicality.
