The study examines rhythm patterns and consistency of the text of praise of Bishr Ibn Abi Kazem to Awes bin Haritha bins Al -Tai in the pre-Islamic era. It also seeks to establish external rhythms : weight, synonyms, repetition or coherence, poetic structure of sounds , and the idea that empowered and motivated the poet to praise Awes Al-Tai . The study reveals that all indicators of the points listed are part of the external rhythm of the poem. However, the internal rhythm of the poem consists of the plot or spirit that spread and add flavor to the poem, organize and develop the idea in ascending or horizontal levels within the architectural backbone of the poem: from A-Z (prelude to the end of the poem). The research has two parts: The first addresses the general concept of the external and internal rhythms. The second covers the role of rhythm and repetition in shaping the poetic experience of Bishr ibn Kazem in praising Awes Ibn Harith Al-Tai, and the aesthetics or state of art of both the internal and external rhythm.
