Besides the end rhyme discussed above, there is internal rhyme through Herrick's poem, strengthening its structure and encouraging a light, lyrical nature. This internal rhyme can be discerned by looking closely at each alternating line in the stanzas; clearly the alternating tetrameter and trimeter assist this comparison, through which we sometimes see one syllable within the line that rhymes with its metrical counterpart. For instance, the first stanza contains "while/smiles" and "still/will". The second stanza contains "the sun/be run" and "[high]er he's/[near]er he's". These short reflections within the stanzas make the poem more lyrical, flowing from the tongue smoothly. hymed verse.
