    I found this book – it says that rhyme is one of the most crucial areas of lyrics writing. So reading any type of rhyming poems should be the thing. Here is the book – see if it can help:
    http://www.amazon.com/Songwriting-Essential-Rhyming-Step-Step/dp/079351181X

    Here is a link to different kinds of poetry. It will show you rhyming schemes and meter counts. It may be of assistance too.

    Hope they help – good luck to you – wish you the best ?
