I'm creating a children's book for a school project. I've been tasked to identify some literary devices used throughout the book.
There is a section of the book which I want to highlight because it represents a major event. There's rhyming throughout the book. However, when the major event happens, the rhyming suddenly stops to produce a dramatic and eerie effect. I'm having trouble identifying what exactly this is.
What would you call that break in rhyming? Would it be considered a literary device?
They built houses and cities, what a marvellous sight.
Oh how amazing it was, it just felt so right.
But it all came down suddenly.
They had nothing left.
It all fell, like the trees they cut.
*Rhyming starts again*
*Story continues and rhyming persists till end of book*
