In the following stanza from “I heard a Fly buzz—when I died—,” which words form a slant rhyme? The Eyes around—had wrung them dry— / And Breaths were gathering firm / For that last Onset—when the King / Be witnessed—in the Room —

A. dry and firm

B. King and Room

C. dry and King

D. firm and Room

    The answer is D because a slant rhyme is a "rhyme in which either the vowels or the consonants of stressed syllables are identical". Firm and Room have the final 'M' sound in common.
