A woman from Arlington, Massachusetts, drew the name "Edwin" from a hat, and so the infant had a name at last, clattering though it was with an ungainly triple rhyme
that he would always loathe.
Or the triple rhyme
of "footfalls," "caterwauls," and "wall"?
And there is one triple rhyme
: dim windows like eyes asquint / pig with
Rhyme is classified according to the number of syllables contained in the rhyme as follows: masculine rhyme, in which the final syllables are accented and after differing initial consonants the sounds are identical (lark, stark; support, resort); feminine rhyme, in which accented, rhyming syllables are followed by identical, unaccented syllables (revival, arrival; flutter, butter); and triple rhyme
, a kind of feminine rhyme in which accented, rhyming syllables are followed by two identical syllables (machinery, scenery; tenderly, slenderly).

There is a small bitter jolt when he rhymes panni ("clothes") with danni ("injuries"), just as in the two triple rhymes

Rhyme's capacity to cross language barriers is demonstrated by triple rhymes
: for example, 'in tabulis | la vile de Paris | so wel me is.' (17) Early Middle English poems, such as the Brut (late twelfth century), represent a transition from the old alliterative to the new syllabic, rhymed verse, and combine alliteration with internal and end-rhyme.
The longer lines all have triple rhymes
; in some of them there is an even more marked degree of repetition.
The term feminine rhyme is also sometimes applied to triple rhymes
, or rhymes involving three syllables (such as exciting and inviting).
