    Tiger, tiger, burning bright
    In the forests of the night,
    What immortal hand or eye
    Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?
    The last two lines don't seem to rhyme. Is it possible that in the times of Blake symmetry was pronounced [simitrai]?
    Only when you stop stopping your life can you begin to start starting it.

    No, they do not rhyme. But some English words are pronounced differently in pose and poetry, for example: 'again' is often set in rhyme with 'rain', but the two are not pronounced the same normally. In poetry, however, 'again' is pronounced with a long 'a' - so it rhymes with a word like 'rain'.
