    Regarding poetic rhyme: Which one is more proper? 1 or 2?

    1)
    "The liege man for his keep must study to requite
    His liege with perfect duty at his liege's day of fate."
    Xianying of the house of Xin counseled Xin Chang so,
    And all men ever since have praised her bold spirit.

    Neither is appropriate - there are no rhymes. The secound is better rhythmically.
