Moo... I am so glad you asked!

A half-rhyme happens when two words share the same final consonant sound but not the sound of the vowel.

So "all" and "soul" are half rhymes.

More on this here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Half_rhyme

A Visual Rhyme are when two words look like they should rhyme because of spelling, but don't actually rhyme.

Examples: "laughter" and "slaughter" or "love" and "prove"

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eye_rhyme

Hey... These contests are an education!

Thanks for the info, Hmm! I wasn't sure about those terms either! I think I will enter, since it's so short - I can kind of be throwing it around in my head for a few days rather than having to actually sit down and do something. And it doesn't cost any KC!

Yes, I know what you mean. I have been thinking up silly couplets -- alas, none about roses -- all morning:

Ganz does not like my creative stuff
So of their contests I've had enough

I entered the contest though I should be in bed
Why oh why must hope raise its ugly head?

I'll likely be entering too.

I love it! I think we could have more fun with this on our own!

Thank you so much for explaining this, Hmm! Would it be okay if I linked your thread on the quick reference? I think it will provide a ton of help.

IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER INFO (yes, I always read the small print)

Here are some things I noticed ... I put the # that you can refer to for reading Ganz's actual words w/ my simplifed explanation of that paragraph.

3. Poem must be no more than 200 characters in length

4. 5 prizes

7. Only 1 entry (some previous contests allowed more than 1)

12. Prizes must be activated by the winner within 60 days of the award or they will be forfeited. This means if you snooze, you lose (your ability to enter the code).

13. Ganz can replace the prizes w/ a prize of equal or greater value. This means if they decide to award a different prize, they can change it at any point before, during, or after the contest. So if you win, and it turns out to be the V-day Piano instead, oh wells !

---------- sno4270 added 13 Minutes and 35 Seconds later ----------

Maybe this was there before + I missed it, but on the Webkinz Newz page next to the big picture of the prize there is a smaller animated one going. So we can see how it works !!
