>        For orange, at least, there's a classic nursery rhyme:
>What is the rhyme for porringer?
>What is the rhyme for porringer?
>The king he had a daughter fair
>And gave the Prince of Orange her.
Whose jaundice made her oranger.

For "chamber," if we allow eye-rhymes, there's "clamber." OTOH, "clamber
(or  'amber')" would rhyme with "timbre" (which I take to be sufficiently
naturalized to qualify), but certainly doesn't *look* like a rhyme!  Excuse
the meander.
