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

This might be of some interest to some, too:

Bhaṭṭa Jayanta (a *northener* from Kashmir) makes a remark which has a
bearing on the habitats of camels at his time: *southerners* *who were not
acquainted with the sight of camels* were perplexed when they unexpectedly
chanced upon them walking in single file, as caravans do:

*paśyaty anugataṃ rūpam avijñāte ’pi vācake | dākṣiṇātya ivākasmāt paśyann
uṣṭraparaṃparām* (NM (1) 283, 2 f.).

Abhinavagupta (from the same region) makes two similar remarks on *the
perplexity of southerners observing caravans or the long neck of camels for
the first time*: *anālocitopapattikam anavalokitārthakriyākam api
dākṣiṇātyasya iva karabhacakram*. ĪPVV Vol. 2, 347, 10 f. (ad 1.7.4)

*dākṣiṇātyo** hi na karabhasya grīvāmātraṃ smarati; karabho hi
dākṣiṇātyasya vismayasvabhāvaṃ sukhaṃ *[...]* janayet*. ĪPVV Vol. 3, 58, 2
f.; 14 f. (ad 2.2.5).
