They're synonymous ONLY if your rhyme is in 3/4 time (or some other musical rhythmic designation, e.g., syncopated). ;-D
Otherwise, rhythm and rhyme are NOT synonymous.

Effect of rhyme in poetry?
The effect of rhyme, like rhythm, is to aid memory. Real poetry can be recited at length because its rhyme and rhythm make it possible for ordinary people to memorize it. No one can recite modern "poetry" beyond a phrase or two, not even its authors, because since it doesn't rhyme and it has no rhythm, no one can remember it.
