If I remember correctly, rhyme in Spanish concerns the last stressed syllable of a verse and the following unstressed syllables, not only the last syllable. Also, Spanish poetry counts feet until the last stressed syllable of the verse. The remainding syllables are not counted. But before the last stressed syllable, all the syllables are counted, whether they are stressed or not. Strange isn't it? Well, I may be wrong but that's what I remember.
