[INDOLOGY] Does anyone know of Sanskrit works that use 2nd-syllable rhyming?

Dear Dominic, 
As for the use of 2nd-syllable rhyming, I’d refer you to the Stuti-vidyā, a work traditionally ascribed to Samantabhadra, but this must be a different one than the author of the Āpta-mīmāṁsā etc. (see http://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s10781-014-9270-3), and lived well after 650.
This Jaina work was most probably composed in the South (Karnataka), however, it draws also from North Indian Jaina sources. 

The edition: 
Pannālāl Jain (ed., Hindi transl.); Jugal Kiśor Mukhtār ‘Yugavīra’ (Introduction): Śrīmat-svāmi-Samantabhadrācārya-viracitā Stuti-vidyā (Jina-śataka) [Samantabhadra-bhāratīkā eka aṅga] śrī-Vasunandy-ācārya-kta saṁskta-ṭīkāse alaṁkta tathā hindīanuvāda se yukta. Cīra-sevā-mandir, Sarasāvā Jilā Sahāranpur 1950.

Best,
Piotr Balcerowicz
