Which of these phrases best decribes rhythm?

A.repeated sounds across lines of poetry

B. a poem's cadence, pace, or ongoing momentum

C.a collection of lines in a poem

D.the regular or irregular rhyme scheme in a poem

The book section we read today disn't define the word well, so know I'm unsure if its A or B. B makes more sense in general but the text says that rhythm "(of a poem) is a distinct beat produced by the pattern of accented and unaccented syllables" Could i get some help with this? Preferably from more than one person, to get a general consensus. Thanks

  2. B is very correct.

    listen to the beat here:
    There go, my hearts content.

    Do you hear the beat, the cadence of the syllables?
