Compiling a historical dictionary of Persian prosody can meticulously determine the creation time for certain meters, their frequency during later periods, as well as the rises and falls in the popularity of prosodic rhythms. Having access to the revised edition of Persian poetry books and Divans today makes this sort of research very essential and useful, particularly that there has not yet been any dictionary -with the above features- among current resources and research studies. It is evident that the first step to compile such an encyclopedia is to survey current Persian poetry books one by one, and then extract the results as the basic necessary foundation to start with. Using descriptive analysis, this article aims to meet the abovementioned essential need by analyzing the poems of Sabahi Bidguli in terms of their Radifs, rhymes, and prosodic meters. Sabahi has made use of 7 prosodic meters, among which Hajaz has more frequency. Most of his poems have Muthamman meter and noun rhyme. Furthermore, the prepositions are mostly used on letters “N” and “R” in his odes and Ghazals. The results also showed that Radif and rhythmic poems have high frequency in the Ghazals of Sabahi, whereas he has not shown much interest to them in his odes. As for lateral meter, his application of rhythmic words and vowel sounds in rhymes contributed to the beauty and melody of his poems.
